1982 - ahhhh...1982 - sold everything, John Mel made me a 5'10" RED tri fin with these beautiful multi-colored fins and I ripped Rivermouth that whole year 7 days a week and at night too. Pure bliss. I could replay that year endlessly and forget the rest of my life.

What are u talking about? - okay first of all the guy that said the rivermouth is also called the murph bar is an idiot. The murph bar is on the surfers right of the harbor mouth. second of all whos the idiot that said the rivermouth is also called suicides. suicides is one of the outside peaks at pleasures buddy. Third of all how gay is that pic caption left by the riverratz. what a bunch of queers. "you risk getting your board broken out there"it's not that heavy of a wave get over yourselves sure it gets hollow but it's rare for someone to break their board out there. But anyways its an awesome wave and super fun to surf. Lot of rippers out there so make sure you know what your doing before you paddle out.Midtown rules!
