Go to Shelly Beach Moruya and look to the NW and see a big rock wall, it breaks this side of it. You can also go to North Heads on the other side of the river to access it.

Week crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
If the River mouth is too crowded check the other side of the rock wall, there is another wedgey break called "the wall", just as good as the mouth.
This spot is epic on good conditions. At high tide it goes fat and usually unsurfable.
It's fucking sick, paddle form shellyu beahc is pretty tiring though (10 min).

Moruya Wall/Mouth - The wall is good for short boards and is often a pretty steep and fast wave, but the rivermouth can work really well too. It's a pretty powerfull take off section and the can just wall up for ages and is fantastic fun especially when it's 4-6 foot. More suited for waveskis and longboards due to it's length or ride and the nice big walls, plus it can be a long paddle back out if you get a long ride.
But when it's working the short boards a can rip it up also.
all the us and them crap on this page is a joke. I grew up in the bay and surf mainly at Durras, Broulee (down the beach) and the river mouth moruya(and the bay when it picks up enough swell). But i live in Canberra now and ride a WAVESKI! so all the more reason to hate me i guess.
it aint no Munduka (surfed there as well) but it's a bloddy great wave and pretty consistent.
everyone relax and respect each other and the ocean and get plenty of waves.

One of the better waves on the south coast - You can travel a fair way round the world, and you won't get a rivermouth left all that much better than this. Sure, Merimbula down the coast gets a bit more perfect, but its way more fickle, and it needs a much bigger swell to work, and sure Moruya is not Mundaka, but it aint bad either. It jacks and barrels well on a 3-6 feet swell, S-SW winds, low tide, up to 100-200m long. Its pretty consistent, as it holds the dominant south winds, and there is even a rare good right barrel on the other side of the channel. 8/10 for mine.
