 Additional Information

There is a little break called Chicken Run that peels off the point occasionally as a right hander, but set you sights out to sea and on anything but a very high tide you'll see some rocks in the middle of the ocean. This is Frenchies. Breaks on a massive storm swell and is accessible by boat/jetski or ironman paddle across deep water (**sharkbait**)... Saw some dudes park their boat out there for the day once.

-   I have surfed out here, the dangers are probably sharks and rocks. The wave itself is not really fast or heavy, but probably can get heavy. I think it could be a long bowly left in the right conditions Downgrade from &#3
