When the red flag is flying at the naval base prepare your ears for an explosion that is sure to happen just as you take off. The water really shakes. The take off spot is very sucky and small. So be nice take your turn and don't drop in. This place can be very fickle. May not give good waves for long periods. Sharks can be a big problem.
The atmosphere during the week is usually mellow. On weekends it does not take much to get very nasty.
When its on its on.

love meano's - super fun wave, can be an interesting take off when its big. during winter mid week with no one around and the navy boys fire up the guns gives the place a great feel. better when the tide is on the lower side but still fun on high tide. apparently heaps of sharks around ive surfed it sooooo much and havent seen one (have a few mates who have) the only problem is that the weekend crowd with their bmw's and etags really get in the way. so go and drink your soy decaf lattes in st.kilda and stay there. WHOOO
