English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Head south out of the Gracetown area towards the local tip. At the end of the bitumen, is a graded track off to the right. Follow it to the end, there is a bitumenised car park with toilets (an indication of how popular this place is). Can't miss the spot. Carpark overlooks the ocean with a good view down to lefties (About a 700 metre walk South). Lot's of wave options along this coast. Check 'em all out.

English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): One of the most consistent small to medium surf spots on the whole coast. As such, it always attracts a crowd. Starts working at 1.5 metre swell (low tide at this size). Fun lefts and shorter rights to be had all round. Holds right up to 3 metres (Big days are easier on higher tides. Tends to close out otherwise).
At a little over head high the offshore shelf starts to break (we call it the 6 foot bubble). This outside break is an easy takeoff if your in the right position, and reforms on the inside. On the mid to low tides the inside left barrels and is a lot of fun. Wave is fast allowing plenty of high performance surfing. Bigger days, or very westerly swells at over 2 metres can sometimes close out with the right hander next door to lefties.
On the very rare occasion you get bigger waves coming from a more southerly direction at 3 and a half metres or maybe more. With a deep tide, and good East or North Easterly wind, these days go NUTTS!!!. I've only really caught one of these days, as other spots are usually firing when it's this big, and lefties is difficult at this size. It breaks on the 6 foot bubble regularly. If you get the inside reform on a day like this with one of these big ones, it barrels like crazy. Watch the end section, even on smaller days. It gets pretty shallow.
WARNING!! Numbers of surfers in the water have dropped off on this coast from time to time in recent recent years due to a couple of fatal shark attacks close by. Keep a close eye out, especially around mid Autumn (Australian Salmon breeding in the area), and September to October (Humpback migration). Lots of sea life (Not all of it friendly).
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Tends to get pretty crowded these days. Has shifts of surfers jumping in and out all day. Tide and wave consistency generally allow everybody to get their share of the action. Vibe is pretty good here, but beware. This is Dave Macaulay's home break, and he owns it ;). Over 50 years old and still going strong. Really friendly bloke though.
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Lefties has got to be one of my all time fave spots, Anywhere !!
Lost count of how many epic fun days I've had here over the years.

Shark attack - On Tuesday 17th August there was a fatal shark attack at Southpoint, near lefthanders and Gracetown. As far as I'm aware this the second fatal shark attack in the area in the past ten years.
Avoid water when seals are present or if murky.

The Right - Sorry Fellas, the right IS Lefthanders. Lefties breaks right as well, though nowhere near as long as the left, and it shuts down inside. This spot is one of my favourite waves in the area, and I've been surfing it for over 20 years now.
