About Balian

Rivermouth rock shelf peak that is a reliable swell magnet, focusing the bulk of it’s size and power on the long left. Often way bigger than other west coast beaches, shifty, steep peaks often arrive unannounced, sweeping up the line-up of improver longboarders and experienced shortboarders. Can sometimes barrel on the smaller inside waves over the shallower part of the reef, but it is generally a wall to shoulder ride. The right goes straight into the river flow, which can bring pollution.
