Park on the slipway and face the ski boats music or park on the mound and walk knowing it will be the same when you get back.
A bit touchy when the waves are good. The river creates the banks and also tires you out. So a worn out local does not appreciate being dropped in on!!!!
Great, and if you are adventurous try the left on the far side of the bay it barrels well and has claimed many unsuspecting surfers boards.

Hollow - I surfed at Yellows in 1997 and found the banks just right. Hollow fast right hander, really clean and powerful for its size. Lots of paddling.
