Description. Our favorite development section begins with a freestyle wave great to develop playboating, ferrying, edge control, combat rolling, eddy catching and piercing with eddy access. The clear blue water progresses with boofs and idea locations for eddy piercing, and confluences into the Lower Trancura. Class III kayakers can takeout early or advanced kayakers can get a few more boofs down to the Lower T takeout.

Highlights. Freestyle or rolling development at the wave, ski-eddy-piercing Tinkerbell Ferries, Confluence Rapid.
Dangers. Class III kayakers should take out at the private confluence beach; beginners or freestylers may have option to takeout at wave; piercing eddy at Tinkerbell Wall has caused a few spin-out to swims. Make sure to pierce and hold angle.
