Atmosphere

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!!!!

General

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.

Lefts - yellows lefts are really underated, they have so much power and is so often hollow. they will give you a session to remmember.

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.
