About Gold Beach

Long stretch of exposed beachbreak, but the short south jetty of the Rogue River offers shelter from the N wind and some excellent sandbar rights and lefts. Heavy currents. Expect competition in the line-up from a gang of seals that ride the place regularly. Watch out for interesting and sometimes classic left-breaking spot (called Little Joes or Between the Jetties) inside the jetties on strong W swells at lower tides. A couple miles down the beach, check out the beachbreak at South Park or (further still) the reefs and sandbars around Hunter Creek, which can all work when a clean, long-period swell and offshores coincide.

With the large seal and fish population here, sharks are definitely in the area (recent encounters).
