“Historically a logging camp, River Jordan has become a surfing town thanks to long wrapping rights known as The Point, Sewers, and Rock Piles[…]. Despite being somewhat inconsistent, these waves crank when it’s on, which is mid-winter, big W-NW swell and a NE wind. The Point at the river mouth can have very long rides (and some lefts back into the river), down the line speed walls and bowly barrel sections over the sand boulder mix.”
