You know, some people may not see it that way. I'm a rafter and I think that the wave is awesome. I go down there nearly every night to watch people surf. However, I somewhat agree that it will cause problems for some inexperienced rafters. That wave was built on a class II run that was really nice to take kids, family etc down at any level. Now there is a wave that could potentially flip a boat. No, you don't have to be a moron to flip there, just in the wrong spot in the river.
I'm sure that there are lots of people out there that think that that wave should not be there. You have to think about the river from other boaters perspectives and not just your own playboating perspective.
I like the wave, but I'm not naive to think that everyone likes it there.

As for rafting with kiddies. If you are on the colorado at 12000cfs you'r kids better know how to swim, even if it is class II.
