 Additional Information

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.
