Yesterday, we watched the first flow over the WaveShaper, located on the Georgia side of the Lower Chattahoochee River. It looked mighty fine, and was visited by some paddlers from late afternoon until the sun and warmth left.
As the construction phase ends here at the WaveShaper, the important tuning phase begins. We will take measurements, gain experience with the various settings of the adjustable WaveShaper, adjust the blocks that have been constructed below the drop, and intended to be adjusted in height. When the site is set, the crew in Columbus who will be responsible for altering waves for different uses or competitions will be confidently trained!
