June 30th PRESS Release – Designs For New Surf Wave

Missoula, Montana – June 30, 2011 –The Max Wave, a local non-profit committed to recreation enhancement through the development of a new surf wave in downtown Missoula, is thrilled to unveil its conceptual designs to the community for an additional surf wave in Missoula. The wave, to be built at the Flynn-Lowney Diversion weir by Ogren Field and McCormick Park, is projected to bring valuable economic and recreational benefits to the community, much as Brennan’s Wave has. On (insert date and time) at Caras Park, the organization will share proposed drawings of the future wave for public review and feedback.

The Max Wave recently selected Allied Engineering Services, Inc. out of Bozeman, Mont. for assistance with hydrologic analysis, engineering services, permitting and grant application assistance. The organization will also be working with S2o Design and Engineering from Lyons, Col., a global leader in design and engineering of the world’s most successful whitewater parks. S2o Design will work hand-in-hand with Allied to provide a master plan, conceptual designs and eventually final construction plans.

“We chose S2o Designs and Allied because of their out-of-the-box concepts. We have the opportunity to build a wave that meets world championship standards, which means we need progressive thinking and a design that attracts kayakers from around the world,” said Jason Shreder, The Max Wave Vice-President.

The Max Wave recently received three conceptual designs with the main goal of providing a great play wave that is competition quality yet still safe and usable for all river recreationalists. The organization will take advantage of a unique opportunity to share and receive feedback on these designs from both the community and professional kayakers from all over the country, who will be in Missoula this week for the U.S. Freestyle Kayak Competition at Brennan’s Wave. The designs will be on display June 30 at The Max Wave booth in Caras Park during the kayak competition. The organization also plans to hold an open roundtable to get formal feedback from the public in July. Designs can also be viewed at www.themaxmissoula.org.

“The Max Wave benefits us all–taking a section of river in downtown Missoula that currently brings minimal benefits or enjoyment to the community and transforming it into a healthy place that people of all sorts will seek out to recreate at and enjoy,” said Justin Ryan, The Max Wave President,. “In addition, the irrigation company is left with a new reliable diversion that requires no in-river maintenance. Seems a win-win situation, even for the fish,”

Supporters interested in learning more about The Max Wave project can visit www.themaxmissoula.org. The Max Wave is a non-profit 501(C) (3) operating under Brennan’s Wave, and all donations are tax-deductible and can be made online or under “The Max” at any First Interstate Bank branch. For questions or to discuss a planned gift, contact Sue Larew at 523-4349.
