Name: CONFUSION RAPID, SARAPIQUI RIVER, COSTA RICA
Was last seen in a more subdued capacity than years past on November 23, 2011. Two weeks later, it has disappeared. Suspicious activity included jumping to the far river right channel – leaving but a small remnant of water heading towards the wall!
This is certainly not the first time that Confusion chose to redefine itself almost overnight. Once upon a time, the entire rapid was forty yard downstream running between two house-sized boulders. Within a week, the boulders disappeared and the rapid became a huge wave train. And within a year, became a wall shot.
It was the wall shot that has challenged many a Sarapiqui boater since! There is hardly a rapid better named anywhere than Confusion on the Sarapiqui here in Costa Rica.
