you can see it on the map if you look at the satellite view. It is right before pigeon point campground, in the middle of the straight away before the river bends right around the campground area. There is actually a road within the campground that goes upstream most of the way to the
wave. It is a great front surfing wave right now! We spent a few hours there yesterday evening before heading home. Melody
Thanks for including this info and a web link. The hole is upstream and around the bend of your red marker, close to where the
dash-dot line crosses the river. So I believe the coordinates would be around N 40.76790 W 123.12901.

We surfed it this weekend! Its about 500 ft upstream of the put-in and appears to be marked with an X on the topo map. To park and play you can drive up a dirt road from the put-in parking lot, past several campsites and park near the farthest one. Its a short walk to the hole. Its a great surf wave that flipped me many times!
Thanks for all the great information!!
