When you surf this spot, do not go out with fear or you will get heavily punished, don't catch waves which break in the middle of the rocks. Make sure you have experience, WARNING: beginners will not survive the break, experienced riders only.
Nugget & Lester say :
Not really a standup wave unless it's turned on and the tides high, so predominantly a booger wave. Can get really heavy when the swell turns on. Best quality when 2-3ft+.
It is a rocky boat ramp which is never used, the bottom is covered in urchins and sharp rocks covered in barnicles, in overcast weather expect the odd shark or two, if shark shows up, slowly leave the water and tell the lifeguard.
I think this spot is the most wedging left on the sunshine coast, it holds a hollow but fast and heavy barrel.
Nugget & Lester say :
I love this spot but it can get really scary when it's heavy because it sucks out to dry rock shelf. Also, there is a peer of rocks in front of you so you have to make it past those.

it's Cunji - or Cunjevoi.I grew up on the Sunny coast bodyboarding this spot when it was on. Every trip back however there's never any swell... I think the title's a bit shit though, any time I've hit bottom it's always been quite soft compared to coral or exposed rock reefs
