Created in 2010 by Surf Sister and Shelter Restaurant, Queen of the Peak celebrates and showcases the fantastic surf talent here on the west coast of Vancouver Island. If you’re in town on October 1 and 2, pop by Cox Bay to watch the longboard, shortboard, and Princess of the Peak divisions compete for the coveted title! We are proud to be a sponsor of this event. Watch the live feed of the competition here and be sure to stop by our Henry Nolla Gallery in the Driftwood Café to see a special exhibition by Bryanna Bradley and Kat Leslie dedicated to the event.
