River surfing wave box

so i thought it be cool to have a flowrider right near my house and new sometimes creeks and rivers make like standing waves. theres a creek near my house and the water moves pretty fast at some parts so would it be possible to build a large box/wedge type deal and put it with the current making a wave? like make it 6 feet long and 10 feet wide, would that be a big enough surface and would it work? has anyone ever tried it?

That's a pretty cool idea! I've never heard of it before, and don't know how it will turn out... but that's a pretty cool idea!
