General

Breaks every so often. Mellow spot. Don't bring a tude as there aren't many surfers (or waves) around here. If you catch it feel lucky and don't try to catch them all.

Is the shape of the 'Great White's dorsal-fin rock' in front of this spot merely coincidental - I awaken the echoes worshipping NOT...

Yep - Not even tryen to put up some localism front. I've surfed it before a few times and it's sketchy.

By Anonymous , 22-07-2008

fickle - machine-like left? thats funny. only thing machine like about the river mouth is the jaws of the whiteys that chill there. otherwise, completely dependent on the shape of the bar thats formed, could be epic could be crappy usually somewhere in between.
