Crowe River - This well known play spot can get quite busy during MACKfest in the spring. Depending on levels, the amount of surfable waves adjusts. However in lower water there are nice waves 100 metres or so down river. In higher water, there are several waves for all boats from long glassy waves, to steep crashing waves, to more retentive holes. In higher water, the eddy access becomes more difficult to achieve, but with some practice, it is attainable. Note that at higher levels, swimming is quite hazardous in this section. There are rock shelves, and a low head dam. This spot is also great for spectators, as they can stand on the bridge to get an overhead view of those surfing the first waves.
