First small town Nth of Gero. Follow the signs to Bowes River Mouth. Turn of Bitumen onto a small dirt road. Follow to the end to a car park then North over the small hill and you will see 3 - 4 Right/Left reef breaks. 1.5 - 2m swell is fun. Afterwards there are other epic breaks in the area that will hold 2m+++.

Picks up the swell better than in town. Best way to surf it, is to find it and enjoy it.
Pristine clean water, lots of marine life, typical mid north coast vegetation - DRY.
Great place to surf.There maybe better breaks in the region but, when the conditions are right, the view as you drive over the small hill is one of 3 large peaks just spinning RT and Lt down the line - Magic stuff

Im the man - No buddy, im the best surfer out there, i say so.
I tell all the kooks to go home. I sometimes wear floaties and a life jacket especially when its over chest high (5 foot). This is a dangerous beach i heard of a guy a shark about 1 metre long was seen about 1 mile off the beach!!! Lucky i wasnt surfing, phew!!!
