Geek Wave (Lower French Kiss Rapid)

kayakers surfing the Geek Wave on the Upper Gauley River in West Virginia

The Geek Wave is located at the top of this rapid and is a favorite for kayak surfing. There is great return eddy service back to the hole making possible hours of fun. The bottom of the rapid is rather shallow. If you're in a raft, be sure to avoid the slot on the bottom right that pushes into a pinning rock.
