I just spent four days surfing on the Salmon River 5 miles upstream from Riggins, Idaho.

The easiest way to find all of the Salmon River Surf Waves is to buy The Playboaters Guide to Idaho. This book has everything you need to surf year round on the Salmon River. In addition, you can check the flows at http://waterdata.usgs.gov/id/nwis/uv/?site_no=13317000andamp;PARAmeter_cd=00065,00060 and also check the road openings at http://www.salmonriverroad.org/construction/ as they are improving this road as it serves at the put-in for the Lower Salmon and the take-out for the Main Salmon.

I had a great time surfing with locals Erik and Wayne. Dave Turner, green All Star in the video also came down from Spokane. Enjoy the video and thanks to Dave and Chris for taking the footage.

I am headed back to the Salmon today. Come surf! Devon
