Plenty deep for flips, trust me I know and good for spins (one for me, without washing off, a bizzillion for Evan, Barry and Chris). The level kept getting better throughout the day. Hope it keeps rising, now at 3.72 at the Britania gauge, at 8:37pm. I’ll be there next Wednesday at 5pm and hopefully we we’ll see the magic level of 4!!!
Kuddos to Chris! What a great idea and gesture for the hot chocolate for everyone. Good river karma to you for sure!
[b:38bs6dan]To get to champlain:[/b:38bs6dan] The Champlain Brigde is the western most bridge connecting Ottawa and Gatineau. It can be accessed fom Island Park Drive or the Ottawa River Parkway on the Ontario side of the river. On the Quebec side of the river it is accessed from Boulevard de Lucerne or Chemin d’Aylmer. Once traveling over the bridge exit halfway across the bridge onto Bate Island. All playspots are located between Bate Island and the Quebec shore.
[b:38bs6dan]To get to Deschenes:[/b:38bs6dan] To get there cross the Champlain Bridge turn left at Boulevard de Lucerne. Head west until you get to a set of lights. Turn left here onto Chemin Vanier and follow it to the parking lot at the end.
Even though it was snowing for a bit yesterday, we managed to make it out to the wall for a bit Sunday afternoon. The eddy is great (better than saturday no need for the rope at all now) and the wave is really nice even I can manage to link more than one spin and not get flushed. Back out wednesday (maybe even have a little sun to make it that much better)
