INFORMATION

RAPID NAME: Second Warm Up Ender Waves

RAPID RATING: Class III

RIVER SECTION: Lower New River Gorge - Cunard To Fayette Station

Ender waves, second of the warm-ups, is relatively straightforward. There are three waves left of center. At high water these waves are a great rafting hit capable of flipping boats. As the water drops these waves still exist but get smaller. At high water, a nasty pourover known as “pig farmer falls” forms to the left of the wavetrain. This rapid can be skirted down the middle at all levels.
