  •  This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (except for level 1 trips when the paddler is not using a spray skirt....if the paddler is wearing a spray skirt on a level 1 paddle, the Wet Exit Certification is REQUIRED).  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group if you intend to wear a spray skirt.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.

Activity Title: Wave play at Cascade Head, L3, 6-26-22
Date of Activity: 6/26/2022
Narrative: The mouth of the Salmon River has something for everyone! Whether experienced ocean paddler to someone wanting to get more comfortable in surf. We will practice surfing (or not getting surfed, depending on your goals). If conditions are small and there is interest, we may head around the head to see the cave!

We will launch from the Knight Park boat ramp, and paddle out to the mouth of the river doing warm-up exercises and a few rescue practices. We will land on the beach and spend some time on instruction/briefing before playing in the waves. When people start getting tired we will ride the incoming tide back to the boat ramp.

A note on immersion wear: A full, proper fitting, wetsuit or drysuit with proper undergarments can be appropriate. Do plan on spending some time in the water and dress accordingly. Contact me with any questions you may have.
