Evans Head Beach

Evans Head Beach

New South Wales, North Coast

This exposed surf spot at the very Australian beach and river town of Evans Head can be fun for beginner surfers during small swells when great waves, both rights and lefts break over the various sandbars that form in front of the surf club.

Wave Type
The sandbars on Evans Head Beach are uneven with rips and long shore gutters present, posing more challenging surfing conditions for inexperienced surfers than at other north facing beaches. When the waves are small, pick an inner sandbar that is attached to the beach and stick to it. Catching really fun green waves and turning is also possible during small wave days and on higher tides. Bigger waves break and stronger rips exist to the north up the beach.

Avoid the permanent rip current that exists beside the break wall at the south end of the beach. During big wave days, look for more sheltered surf spots up or down the coast at Byron Bay to the north (one hours drive), or Arrawarra Beach to the south (two hours drive) as the rip currents at this beach can be dangerously strong. During and after heavy rain the water does get murky, so give surfing a miss until the water cleans up.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South to North West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small North to East swells around to medium South swells.

Rocks, rip currents and marine life.

Have fun surfing Evans Head by practicing surfing etiquette and surf safety.
