PERTHS OWN RIVER WAVE!
Breaking just on the north side of the Canning Bridge in ridiculously strong, northerly winds and the outgoing tide.
It's a small wave in the river on the side of the Canning Bridge from about 50m north and lasts right up until the actual bridge.
It's created by a mix of the water rushing through the bridge and the wind wipping up chop in the water.
You wouldnt bother if theres some swell but fun for something different.
Hardly worth the effort, but if you feel like something different, have a go!

??winds?? - how strong does the wind have to be for it to break?
