that beach has become sharky - yap, bodyboarder was eaten there 18 months ago, an english dude was nibbled by a small 4m great white last week at dunes.

Overrated - Hoek poep ... this wave is crappy , stinky and just plain dull . The bank is either a closeout or there's just no sand in the Bay at all . Stupid competitions held in the horrible closeouts nearly every weekend , as tossers sun themselves behind their little hidey peepey holes . Double crap before midday and bloody windy in the arvo . Get some real waves girlie boys . It's a weak pathetic excuse . Cemetery and 9 miles has the goods and the Strand kicks arse !
