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.
Never heard of it being really good
pretty heavy all up, inclusive of paddle etc
