only really starts to work on a big swell, has some intersting sections, including a sucky take off and a fast barrel section, but soon fades out into a deep channel, sometimes on a really big swell you can make it into the inside section on the beach for an extra long ride!!if you get rolled you usually end up in the channel soon enough so is pretty safe in this respect.
I went to tafe in freo for 2 years straight and almost every day i passed this spot on the train. I saw i working about 5 or 6 times and only 2 or 3 was it really creating a nice wave and usually after a rather large storm which was crap because than you had to wait for the weather to lull somewhat.
great wave for all surfers, sometimes theres a bit of agro( isnt there everywhere now days!!) this wave was built to relive the crowd situation at other local breaks, and cost the local tax payers quite a bit of money. it was generally a success but was placed in a position where there is a very small swell window , needing a solid nor west swell to start to work.
in my opinion, and others, it has only created another crowded wave, instead of taking the crowds away from other spots, but it is a much better wave compared to the quality of the other nearby breaks. we need more artifical reefs like this all up and down the coast.!!
