It is near the cowramup bay area. Stop at the shop and buy and ice cream take in some scenery of the bay; north and south point, not breaking? So head to lefthanders!

This spot is a swell magnet, one might say it picks up the most swell in this region, full stop. As such, it is also a surfer magnet, often massively crowded, more so in summer!
It is a great long lefthander, as the name suggests

Shark attack - On Tuesday 17th August there was a fatal shark attack at Southpoint, near lefthanders and Gracetown. As far as I'm aware this the second fatal shark attack in the area in the past ten years.
Avoid water when seals are present or if murky.

The Right - Sorry Fellas, the right IS Lefthanders. Lefties breaks right as well, though nowhere near as long as the left, and it shuts down inside. This spot is one of my favourite waves in the area, and I've been surfing it for over 20 years now.
