The biggest bummer was that I was out of time, and
could not stay and play. So I headed up the hill with the promise to
return the next day.
The next day the river had risen to 1200 and it was unclear if it would
be too high or too low. So I headed down and met up with a few others
that were finishing up the run. We all agreed again that the same
variance applied to the gauge and that it was pretty much in a prime
level, if not just a little itty bit low. Normally 1200 would be very
After a few wheels and turns we all decided that this
would be an accurate representation of Paradises prime flow for this
weekend, or until the gauge is updated/changed/fixed.

1000 - 1150 (Shallow but wheels & loops are open)
1150 - 1250 (Starting to get epic but it is still a little shallow and steep)
1250 - 1350 (Prime Level - Loops & everything else, Best Levels)
1350 - 1450 (Great Level but starting to get flushy)
1450 - 1550 (Fun Surfing but wheels and loops are going to flush right off)
Thanks to everyone that shared this great weekend with me, and here's
to hoping for more Paradise flows in optimal range. What a great spot.
