This is Brennan's Wave in downtown Missoula. Thanks to the efforts of many local whitewater community enthusiasts, what was once a dream is now reality: great surfing in city limits. Brennan's is named after Brennan Guth, a local hero among the paddling crowd who passed away while paddling in Chile several years ago.
I think I speak for most of the boating crowd of Missoula when I say that this whitewater feature is a true testament to the quality and commitment of this community. The Wave's in all year, as long as it's not frozen solid.
Park in the Caras Park vicinity and surf away; and if you wish, paddle across the river and take the two-minute walk to the Kettlehouse Brewery to taste what's arguably the world's best IPA.

Schmergen? I don't know if I can trust river beta from someone who calls themself Schmergen! Wait... you're not the Schmergen who is bringing "switch" style to big drops in a kayak... I think I saw you do that once in the Kitchen Sink? Sick!

Or are you the schmergen who holds the Ledge Endurance Surf Record on the Blackfoot... rumor has it you swam in the wash of the brennan's wave last week? I don't understand...

Well said Con lo! Schmergen is simply an inside joke very few will understand (fortunately, you are among those few). I'd probably be a bit skeptical about trusting info. from a schmergen too, come to think of it (but i assure you, all info. on the site is accurate as of the day i posted the runs). And yes, i have been known to run a few drops switch, but never on purpose! And i have yet to swim on Brennan's, but i definitely wouldn't put it past me (or the Bassman for that matter, who has recently been nominated as the captain of the Brennan's swim team!). Thanks for your comment Con lo!

Great article on what is definitely a great statement about Missoula. The community jumped through a bunch of Federal red tape to get this wave built. We are lucky to have Kettle House to help us enjoy the evening and increase the grandeur of our accomplishments. Beer always makes it better.
