How can evaporation occur?

What makes you think that the surface is hotter than the bulk of the liquid?
Hi Philip Wood thanks for the reply

Because at the surface of the liquid is where the a tiny amount of water molecules reaches 100 degrees? But that doesn't make sense to me because shouldn't heat be transferred away before that much heat can be accumulated?
