general information

This is a very inconsistent surf spot located in a very polluted river mouth. However, every now and again when the sandsbanks are formed just right it produces an epic wave. From the peak you get an awesome right which peels away with a fast lip and hollow bowels for some good tube action. The left is shorter and even more inconsistent.

Be wary of rips, pollution and protective locals.
