Nice place to park your car is off Dingle St near groyne or off Merima St off the main break.
The swell is consistantly small, the locals say they have not had much swell on the beach for almost a year. The best place to surf is on the headland at the northern end of the beach or closer to the rocks at the southern end of the beach depending on winds.
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.
Very average place to surf when there is no swell, which for most of this year has been the case.

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.
