Know before you go! Before you head down to the Bend Whitewater Park, check the updates here or on Facebook. These reports help you understand river flows and what activity/level each wave is set up for.

Please note that while the pneumatic bladders in the center channel of the Bend Whitewater Park allow us to manipulate the river to create waves and rapids, we do not control the flow of the river. This means a wave feature may be different than what is expected or intended without notice. We try our best to let you know when flows fluctuate and effect waves however, the Deschutes River is a natural body of water and can change.

Brooks FosterIt's too bad the best feature at the park can't be tuned for use as a world class kayak play spot. The holes downstream are better shaped for kayakers, but the water doesn't move through them fast enough to fulfill their potential. I found the "green" wave to be fun in a kayak when the water was at its highest this summer, but it was still more of a front surfing wave and would not allow aggressive tricks. The speed of the water and uniformity of the trough at the green wave seem ideal for a world class kayak playspot. What is missing is the ability to shape it into a thick and retentive foam pile. I guess this is why the local kayakers are miffed that the best feature in the park is almost exclusively for river surfers who reportedly didn't exist as an organized group in support of the whitewater park until after it was built.

Charlie HivelyI assume it was tweaked since this morning. Around 7:30 it was unsurfable
