Atmosphere

Ive had some really good waves here, hardly ever seen anyone else out but trust me it does get very good. Come when theres no wind, nice clean conditions.

General

Currents are strong, especially when the mouth has been opened, wouldnt advise surfing then. Come with abit of experience and if you a strong swimmer. Also gotta watch out for sharks. (Its a rivermouth so..) Bring a mate though and youll have it all to yourselves.
