Put on from the wwkc clubhouse and drop down the v on the weir and theres is two nice and big eddies either side of the wave although you can only get onto the wave at most levels from surfers left.

The Get off is fairly straight forward.You get out of your boat and walk up the stairs beside the sluice gate then just paddle back across to the WWKC clubhouse.

The wave will work anything from 2 and a half megs off water plus, but the sweet spot seems to be about 4-4.
