“Crunchies is a small mellow break great for long boarders and the Grommies!! Friendly locals... as long as you don't drop in on any of them. Must be high tide to surf unless your rock exploring. Generally better with a light offshore sort of wind rather than glass, basically hopeless in onshore. But all in all definitely worth a surf. GO NUTS!!”
