Designs To Be Revealed For Second Wave In Missoula
Progress continues with the new surf wave in Missoula. The wave will be much like Brennan’s Wave, just downstream from Caras Park near Ogren-Allegiance Park. The Max wave will be created in honor of the Missoula kayaker, Max Lentz, who died in West Virginia during a 2007 kayaking accident. Linda McCarthy from the Downtown Missoula Association, professional kayakers from across the country and the Max wave design committee are unveiling conceptual drawings tomorrow (6/30/11) in Caras Park at one in the afternoon. Vice President of the Max Wave Committee Jason Shredder says the designs are for a river enhancement project
Shredder says later on in the afternoon there will be a competition on the river and assures people that it is safe.
Shredder says the new wave will make an economic impact on the community while cleaning up a stretch of the river and also make it safer for floaters.
