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.
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).
Beautiful but fickle

Shit - I'm a local
And its shit, constant rip down to airies, touros everywhere this time of year just getting in the way, just pisses you off when your out trying to get a decent surf. Not that there is any surf to begin with (:
