Go past the south end of Manly Beach and up the hill onto Cliff Rd, turn right at the end and then wind around the street until you get to the carpark. Then look over the edge.

Take a big board and avoid suck rock. On a great day you can make it through from Winkipop through to Fairy Bower or 'Racecourse' where you'll really need to hold your best speed trim to make it. Potential 300m+ waves but ultra rare.
Crowd's descend on this place like no other in Sydney. Pick your spot, talk to the locals and you may score a couple of the best rides ever. Otherwise paddle out and watch the psycho's surf Deadman's (one wave further around) or the inside bowl at Winki for multiple second barrels.
A++ If you get it uncrowded, buy a lotto ticket. worth it tho.

- "Winky-Pop". "Manly" Beach. "Fairy" Bower. Who in the hell names these places?
sounds like 3 places that Gay Nude Guys would go to sun themselves.
