 Additional Information

This is a great spot when it is on. One of the better kept secrets on the north coast. The locals at Evans have had this spot to them selves for far to long. When it is breaking you get a nice hollow wave breaking from the river mouth. Check it out if you are travelling through and dont take any shit from the locals.

Atmosphere

As a long time local, the above comment is rude. We are friendly folk who by and large take our turn in the line up, but we don't have to take attention from blowins (and you spell that too with a double oo).

Evans Head - Main Beach
By herwig
Nov 14, 2007
Deja Vu - As we arrived at Evans Head I suddenly felt like I have been here before. At second view, I found many things - landscape, harbour jetty, wave direction - similar to my favorite break at Anglet/Les Cavaliers! Matching to this impressions weather
