the wave starts on a shallow iregular rock bottom, then the wave mushes out untill it hits the sand/rock shorey, the sorey can get really heavy, but most of the time that is mush as well. fun wave on its day.
Hunchies is run by the "TEAMHUNCH" crew. Basically you can only get a wave if you surf well or you know someone. If you are on a bodyboard dont bother, you'll just get burnt all the time.
its great on a good day but crowd factor is high alot of malibues at hunchies bay. it is ok on its day but still not the best wave. keep the beach clean and good luck

Hunchies & hunch bay - hunchies and hunch bay are 2 different breaks next to each other. hunch bay is a slow crumbling wave for malibus while hunchies is fast and powerful for surfers and bodyboarders. this describtion is crap and some of the pics arent even hunchies.
