Atmosphere

In all Kings Beach is a great spot to learn to surf or to just bust out for the local photogs and chicks. Everyone around kings is friendly except for the occasional loudmouth or old ladies.
+
The atmosphere is very touristy, with inexperienced surfers learning to ride small waves.

Great fun, heaps of chicks.

Kings - Kings isnt usually pumping, but when it is, preety much every guy on the coast is out there. Groyne is gnarley as, but just to the side of it is "halfways". When its a bit bigger and you want to bail on the crowds just paddle over and be patient, somethings bound to come through. Kings is where I learnt and I preety much go there every day (unless I can hitch a lift with someone). It might not be the best break in the world but its treated me well over the years.
