 Información adicional

The take-off here is over a very shallow rock. It's quite intimidating at first but as long as you take off slightly on the shoulder and gradualy work your way in, you'll be OK. The wave starts with an exciting drop, followed by a nice powerful bowl on which you can typically do a nice re-entry. After that it slowly begins to fade.

The nice thing about this spot is that you seldom have to contend with whitewater, as there is a deep channel with a rip that helps you out to the break.

To paddle out, you have two options. The first, for experts only, is to walk out on the rocks and jump in right at the break between sets. 'course if your timing is bad you'll get clobbered. The suggested method is to paddle out in a 6 foot gap in the rocks on the right hand side of the beach. There is a permanent rip there that sucks you out in no time.

The trickier part of this spot is getting back to shore. Head straight for that 6 foot gap in the rocks - it's by far the easiest. On big days be really careful. A big whitewater can easily sweep you past the gap when you try and come in, leaving you with a dangerous swim in over some jagged, mussel-covered reef.

Despite a very local crew out at Queens, they are generally friendly, as this spot does not attract large crowds.

Queens is Epic - Queens is my local break - FAT rad lefts... can be a bit short but its generally just a few of us so loads to go around!

Has a rep for rouge 8 - 10 foot waves in between what you think is consistent 6 foot break, so take it from a local - on big days ... Try not to catch the first wave of the set unless you are very quick to get right.

Short ride - On the negative side, Queens is a very short ride, difficult take off (at first), freezing water, coming in is scarry.On the positive side, when you manage to take off once - it's easy, no need to paddle much, easy access, local homeless once gave me a lecture about world politics for 30 minutes while I was getting changed. The funny thing was that he made complete sense!
