5 years ago? Maybe this is when you found out about it.
Hate to burst your bubble but people have been surfin down there for over 15 years. They were just better at keepin a secret.
Jib is right it is a touchy issue. Every year it seems to gets worse, once this summer it was like a monkey funckin a football down there. People without the skills tryin to catch the wave gettin worked in the eddie then watchin/yelling the rest of the day from the bridge. Over 6 vehicles parked everywhere with dogs (4) runnin all over that Afgani lookin landscape. One group said they were planning on campin and staying at the wave for 3 days.
I guess my point is - post directions, hell start a contest and bring in that big ass red bull blow up make sure every kayaker/Colorado tourist knows not only about this spot but also make sure they have has access to easy directions, and make sure there is 6 or more vehicles parked here at all times. Campers, dogs runnin uncontrolled everywhere
Just my 2 cents - but I would like to keep with the tradition of the M-wave, let someone who knows take you and let you in on the rules that go with the place. Realize that you are not at the golden or confluence play park(s) any more and act like it. Leave the mutt at home. Shit at 7-11. Dont Camp here. I know this will be a stretch for a lot of boaters but try to respect what is going on, the place, the land, and the locals if this could happen who knows we may be surfin there for another 10 years but as it is goin now I doubt it.
