Connor from United States
“Great surf. Especially after decent thunder storms. The only bad part about the beach itself is a very small parking lot and if you can't park there, you'll have to pay 15 dollars. Jenness also has flags to represent where you can and can't surf. Surfers and body boarders generally get much better surf than the swimmers area. Which is what I especially like about the beach”
