Because it's dam controlled the Tieton River in Central Washington only flows through September. So last weekend my brother and I made our first trip to the Tieton with Nate and Heather Herbeck. The run is continuous with standing waves and catch on the go surf waves the whole way down. After throwing dozens of wavewheels and kickflips on the standing waves, we came up on the Bridge Wave. The Bridge Wave is a relatively slow river-wide wave with a sticky left side. After I figured out the dynamics of the wave I was able throw consistent blunts and spins and occasional loops. Because the Tieton only flows in September large crowds of people in a variety of watercraft passed by the Bridge Wave each day. Watching cat-rafts, paddle rafts, and inflatable kayakers surf the bridge wave was always entertaining, and the bridge over the wave provided for a unique viewing angle.
