Ok so lets face it. The spot is not G-land but manalive, when you are stuck in swell starved Powell River for the winter, it might as well be. I've had a heap of fun here. Bring a big board or a fish becase you will be surfing a lot of reforms. The best time to hit it is on the trailing edge of a howling storm. You can get some pretty fun rides. Have and awesome session.
If you see white caps way out the straight near Texada island. It's on like tron.
Man, I love it. When it goes it's like the smell of pancakes cooking on Saturday morning. What a treat.

Hansons - I've surfed it and although it's rare, it's fun. A great stoke release in Powell River. Thanks.
