Number of places to get to the beach. Follow the road over the Creek park about a mile down the road and walk to Black Rock. You can often catch a well shaped beach break near the rocks.
Best when there is not much swell or wind about. Open beach without any protection from the elements.
This is the hottest break on the whole north coast but not many people know about it. Great waves off the river mouth and the river walls. try the south wall when everywere else is blown out with a summer northerly.
