Evans Head Beach
This is a terrific country event, where the community gets right behind the event that ultimately benefits it.
Evans Head is on the NSW far north coast between Yamba and Ballina, and the 750m and 2km swims takes place opposite the surf club.
Evans Head is an open beach with shifting breaks, gutters, and rips, with intensity depending on tides, wind and swell direction. There is some protection from the breakwater and the headland at the southern end of the beach, and the breakwater can offer a quick run-out.
Like all good country events everyone's invited to dinner at the Evans Head - Casino SLSC on Saturday night. Nights such as these are very important to country swim organisers as fundraisers. So if you're in town for the swim, or you're just in town, have tea at the surf club on Saturday night.
