Nile Creek Does Go Off - I regularly surf both the east and west sides of the island, including remote breaks on the west coast like Twin Rivers and Hesquiat Peninsula. I pulled up to Nile Creek during the tail end of a strong winter storm, and I was blown away. The first thing I saw was a guy on a funboard go over the falls backwards while trying to paddle over a 7 foot curling face. I laughed my head off in disbeleif and suited up for what ended up being a super fun session on the east side of the island. Quick fast rights, occasionally heaving lips, and very very strong sideways currents (typical on any point break)I follwed the storms, and found It only breaks like that a few times every winter.
