Sharky Shank right - In the 70s there was (and probably still is) a small right off a reef down a ways from the big left. Surfing one afternoon with me mate Kip and this shark jumped out of the wave face just as he missed the take off. No dolphin - definitely a 6' shark which followed us both in as we washed up on the rocks. Little brother Chris was watching from the top of the cliff and thought we were going to be eaten for sure. Didn't surf the right much after that.
