“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 rivermouth 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.”

“It is a spectacular spot for family outings and day trips. The fifteen to twenty minute hike (each way) through the first-growth forest of Sitka spruce, Douglas fir and western red cedar leads visitors to the great rolling breakers of a tumultuous sea. The fine sand beach is ideal for picnicking, sand building, wading and relaxing – and it is a beach that is exceptional to comb after tides recede. Take a short walk to the western end of the beach to the waterfall, or wander at length to the east.”Take a Closer Look ›
