The Rio Vista white water park in San Marcos, Texas was created from an old low head dam. It has 3 sections with wave features and cables to hang gates from. The top wave is the largest and then they decrease in size from there.
After getting back from Mexico we stayed for the weekend and got to run gates with Ben Kvanli of the Olympic Outdoor Centre. It was lots of fun and some fabulous coaching. Like anything, improvement comes from the accumulation of many small things. It was great to have Ben there to provide tips and tricks.
