I was recently told by a few members of the
Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club about a playspot
Mirabeau Point (near the Valley YMCA) a few weeks
ago. They call it the "Toilet Bowl" and after
visiting the hole last night while mtn. biking, I
found it to really be surging and vortexing.
The water builds up behind the rock point and
then surges at times creating a 3-foot tall water
pile on surfer's left below a granite outcrop.
There is a small wave on surfer's right.
If your bored of Dead Dog, want a dynamic,
ever-changing river formation and the chance to
try out your bombproof roll, you might try this
park and play spot. It might even be a good place
to lose some more equipment.
There is another small playspot 60-feet below
"The Toilet Bowl" on another outcrop. The SCKC
members called it the
"Bedeau." I think that is the right spelling in
French for toilet. Have fun boating!
