Week crowdFew surfers
Spot is extremely fickle and only breaks about 20 times a year.
Beware crowds of up to 100 surfers on the good days.
Plenty of snaking longboarders.
Is also the only spot that handles swell over 10 foot.
atmosphere at millars is mellow to a certain degree.Can get bad vibes when crowded and the longboarders are getting greedy.But otherwise a mellow vibe.
Fires when the swell comes!

Only for the patient... - I've surfed Millars at about 8-9 foot - in '84 in winter off a big south ground swell after the wind turned west. Any time it gets big it breaks on the middle reef unless the tide is high - and it needs a full storm swell to get any size. So it mostly has a reputation from the old days before the breaks were affected by the pier that was built and harbour wall extention in the 70's. Its really just a fun wave that can be good under specific conditions. Typified by a lazy flat section that suddenly pulls up in a steep wall for 4 - 5 meters before going soft then it repeats this a few times as a result of the reef. It can produce very small barrels easily on the rising and dropping tide. Suffers from chop in the NE wind.

Sick wave - Surfing as a lifestyle is all about patience .....when the good wave switches on ...you gotta chuck everything and be on it !Millers is like that . If you want instant gratification and can't wait piss off and if you can ,this is an epic wave for the folk who are true die hard frothers.I've had J-Bay type waves here over a 10year span of sessions.Best at 4-6 ft....very deceptive ..you can assasinate the lip and pull in for 150m .Love it when cooks tune crap about this wave- more for me and my bros....quality before quantity!J-Bay comes to PE for the patient ones who always have their eyes opened ready to pounce.

- ye when millers is working the waves face is softer than the surrounding beaches but it has some sections where its good to smack off the top. nice break if u want a long rolling wave with some barrel sections. i extremely dislike the snaking longboarders though. its normaly the older guys they snake u but if u do it back then they give u a kak look. they normaly suck too.
