River wave and river surf articles

  • Ramp angles for waves

    This post is part of Surf Anywhere’s creation of public wave building knowledge. The purpose of this knowledge is to make river wave building easier and to improve wave quality. An overview of the research is at SurfAnywhere.ca/wave-research.

    The ramp or slope upstream of the wave generates the water velocity needed to create a river wave. […]

  • Effects of channel walls on waves

    This post is part of Surf Anywhere’s creation of public wave building knowledge. The purpose of this knowledge is to make river wave building easier and to improve wave quality. An overview of the research is at SurfAnywhere.ca/wave-research.

    Full channel walls allow for a higher wave and a cleaner wave. The walls allow the tailwater to […]

  • Flat bottom wave dimensions
