Chickens is no good - Don't bother. Great if u love paddling against rips and love fat waves. Much better waves at cokes or the other breaks further south. If it looks good its average. If it looks bad don't even think about it.

Real smooth - I surfed it for about a week in early Sep 07. I got 4 to 6 feet everyday - better on the full tide. It can be crowded in the early morning, but around lunch time it is usually deserted. At the inside peak you will get a stepper take-off and a longer wave but if you try the main peak and if you are fast enough it may ride the all wave - some 150 yards. Perfect for intermediate surfers and longboaders.

Chickens...The Best - I have just reciently been on a surf trip to the maldives and surfed chickens a bit. There were a few people out but it was managible. You just have to watch out for the Italian surfers. They are agro and always drop in on you. They are so anoying. But the surf was epic. One somedays there is a really steep takeoff and on others it is the easiest takeoff in the world. There is a nice rippable face that is perfect for long cutbacks and those sort of maneuvers. It is a must surf, along with Cokes. They are both awsome surf spots
