Take the second left going away from the pub. Park you car at end of the street, the walk down the track down along the point.
This wave has been called a little Shark Island. On a swell that is 3ft+, the wave will break on a bombie. This will give you a easier start into the wave. The main section is about less then a foot deep. A very good bodyboarders wave.
It can be a very testing wave. With one take off spot, it can get crowded very easy.
If you don't like the taste of rock, I wouldn't go. This place is also been called BUTTONS reef. It has been featured in Riptide Bodyboarding Mag.

Ridiculous behaviour - Guys (mostly),
All the groms flippin their lids over this break being local weren't even a sperm in their old mans ballsack when this place was being surfed by locals and touro's alike. I was there with innovators like Simon Whitehall who was the first lidder I saw charge it at 6foot plus!! Not saying that guys don't charge it these days, but get your heads together. Quit with the trashin of peoples property!!! As far as you know, they were probably surfin it before you were sucken yr mummas titty!! Nothing secret about it...stands out like dogs balls when having a beer at one of the premier pubs in teh country. MC

It's called Razors.... - 15 years ago it was good... and it was called Razors... it even had it written on the rocks. it was quite scary surfing it a low tide... that's how Razors got it's name. Long live the grey haired boogers.
