Surfing a Kruger on the Haw

I did a "attainment" (upstream) workout on the Haw River near Chapel Hill, NC this morning (473 cfs). I started at the dam at highway 15/501 and paddled upstream to the first "big" rapid (a class II). Before returning downstream, I was able to surf a wave in the Kruger Sea Wind. I'm ready for the summer of whitewater!
