"Never has surfing a wave been so sweet as my first ride on the second thumping wave at 120 cumecs (cubic meters per second) and experiencing the real dimensions of something which to that point had only existed in our imaginations."
River towns across the U.S. aren't the only ones surfing the whitewater-park wave of success. S2o Design and Engineering recently completed New Zealand's first in-stream whitewater park, the Camphill Surf Park, and it too is earning rave reviews. Founded in 2003 by Scott Shipley, S2O Design prides itself on innovative and holistic approaches to whitewater park design that meets economic, environmental and recreational objectives.
