Park at the end of the Boat Club...always looks tiny from the road, suprising once you get out there. Ledgy short take-off fades quickly into deep water. Rocks in lineup. Easy paddle from boat ramp. Slippery entry.
It will get debunked as a myth for sure, hence "Illusions". Next time the pa is 3-4 foot, go and take a nosey at mid-high incoming tide. Entertaining because it is never surfed.
Generally, it is a pretty average spot. Will break for an hour two, then be flat. Low tide will see you skewered on the rocks...takeoff is in knee deep water with kelp.

Bitter Kris - That must be because you haven't ridden it. Look at my description, it's crappy, ledgey right and goes once in a blue moon at the right tide, but it's rideable for a drop, bottom turn, snap then fade. But then that describes most of the waves in Plimmerton. And no, I've never surfed off the firestation becauses it's too fat to ride.
