I was there on Tuesday and the first wave was completely green. The second wave was barely breaking and very hard to catch/stay on with the play boat. The guy who was on the SUP was able to get some nice soul surfs on the first wave so maybe it's good enough for a longer kayak.

I'm out for tonight but I will most likely be there as soon as the level goes back to 59.95m or below.

Won't be able to make it tonight.

Apparently the wave is totally washed out.

Sounds like a plan.  Question is, what boat to bring?  Perhaps a sea kayak?

With all the snow melt and rain we've gotten, Champlain/Bate Island is as high as it has ever been.
Last count was 60.12 on the Britannia gauge: http://wateroffice.ec.gc.ca/report/real_time_e.html?stn=02KF005
Some of us will be there to paddle (or just watch?) after work and head over to Whispers for after 7:00pm or so.
