One of the areas secret spots, Chongs is a thick left hander that rarely gets crowded due to its secrecy. Its outside peak offers an easy take-off before hitting the reef, bending into a long barrel section. Intermediate and advanced surfers only, the wave is surfable at all sizes - but with an increase in size, turns into a thick lipped barrel machine.
