Is M>Wave Going or did Farmers & Ranchers mess it up?

I heard Farmers and Ranchers put concrete blocks in the wave to keep boaters out. Can anyone confirm?

Yeah, They did, don't go. If anybody messes it up it is your own fault. The farmers and ranchers have been very gracious over the past fifteen years even letting people in there. The influx of all the newbies has pretty much pissed off the ranchers. All the young punks go in there with and have no respect for anything. So if you know where it is keep your mouth shut. There are enough people going there already.

the wave is different from before, they cemented in some re-bar that is hard to see unless you look close. very sketchy, and no longer good enough to be worth it. oh well.

Wav is right – it is all screwed up. I had the opportunity to session this wave over the past 8 summers and when we made the trip earlier this year what was a “wave” is now a beater “hole” that hammers you down on the concrete shelf and holds a boat! Also there seems to be new rocks directly behind the hole that 2 of us slammed into upside down (this could be what the ranchers put into the wave?). I took 2 rides and left. The only good about this day was 12er I drank on the way home.

I know this fuckin sucks.

Not a farmer but have spoken to the farmers on numerous occasions. They don't like cars lined up all the way down the one lane road.

P.S. pro-zoned as least name your self after a boat that was made in this decade...

The farmers/ranchers didn't screw this wave up - the boaters did. Too many boaters telling too many boaters about the wave did it in. Too much mis-behavin' messed it all up for everyone.

Nope - I am not a farmer or rancher but understand their issue with the crowds and all. Probably too much peein' and poopin' on their land too.

It was fun while it lasted.
Like it or not, all of us are the result of a sexual act.

manskter there are some people who have lived in the state way before your stupid ass, so keep you comments to you self most likley you are from cali or texas and claim colorado as your state, as for the boaters you have to realize that they are stupid people in whatever sport you do so you can't blame it on young punks cause i have seen more older guys who are dicks at holes then younger ones
