Fast,sucky take off appears from nowhere.First section fast and super hollow with some backwash on lower tides then flattens out for a second or two to sort yourself out then second section about 20 meters fast and really sucky then flattens out to nothing.It always looks smaller from the outside but once you've paddled the 100m then you see!!
Insane,set yourself up inline with the green house and you'll be getting slotted every time.The local bodyboarders know how its done,ask them and they will show.Uncrowded,perfection when its going off,Early surfs at low tide lockjoint then high tide thicklip makes your day,5 star
