 Additional Information

when the bank forms the swell will reach a rock wall (manmade pool, which can also double as a tube machine when the swell is to big to ride)it will then bounce off the wall and hit the incoming swell, causing a rider to get launched way above the wave, will only really work well a couple a times a year.

Usually very shallow on the sand bar and also can be end up being washed into the rock wall,
mostly bodyboarders spot.
try to avoid this spot if it's low tide and your board is a stand up that features big chunky fins.

This spot is set up on a rock wall so if your a esky lid rider you have the surf of you life. the waves was up on to the wall and form a 2-3 foot backwash. this means that you can catch waves out into oncoming wave. the boost you recive is amazing. if you gonna booge anywhere on the coast, go hard and hit up this epic spot.

Atmosphere

this break has a solid take off but will give u nice long hollow tubes

It is basically a circus because it is so close to where people can see you, it is also located just around the corner of a well known break so people see the festivities and come and watch. The atmosphere is really fun when it is small, but when it gets bigger and the waves have more consoquences you have to watch out for a number of things: the rock wall just a few feet away from the take off zone, the locals as they arn't that friendly when a blow-in enters the water and doesn't show respect (especially when the break next to it is a heavilly localised bodyboarding break)

Same as Snapper Rocks, very nice spot for the whole family. Public areas for picnic's (public barbecues and lavatories available), same with free public showers.

General

this spot is worth a try

hell fun, come on down and watch when it fires cause it is really cool to see people get launched on 10m from shore, it is only one peak though so any outsiders to surf may not be very welcomed.

If Snapper Rocks is doing its thing but is way to packed with stand up surfers, give froggies a try if the tides and winds are just right.
(remember usually very shallow, try to avoid this spot if it's low tide and your board is a stand up that features big chunky fins.

By booger smasher , 24-12-2008

booger lovers - yeh this is a homo wave boogers only. all boogers go here to kiss and cuddle each other thats why its a boogers only spot. no one has a problem with kids boogin but when you get older and still are then its pretty gay. its just looks retarded. an epic day for boogers is a 3 foot shorey...pretty pathetic. there should be a culling season for these people.

By Anonymous , 29-12-2007

person below me - you have just made me wanna kill everyy surfer i see haha fucking no one owns snapper. Froggies is best on low tide cos its not so close to the rocks and whoever said the back wash works 2 days a year is a joke its good like every week. i also fucking hate surfers that come out at froggies and call you off the wave but then dont go!!! shuld of seen the other month we seen some surfer gettin smashed into the rocks felt pretty sorry for him (it was about 4 ft but it served him right comin out at froggies its a boogers spot.. nobbys is better though

By Anonymous , 20-11-2007
