The rights hold up longer because the lefts go into the pier. Better to shortboard here There's a parking lot close by.
Breaks by a pier, the rights hold up longer than the lefts because the lefts head into the pier.
This spot is great for shortboarding, but on the smaller days it's fun to longboard.

PIER @ NIGHT - The SC pier is best hit at night like 1030-11pm at the end of a south swell. Nobody in the water and the waves on the N side rip lefts and are pretty well lit.

It get good sometimes! - The Pier is often walled up. It really needs a combo swell to make it a peak and break good. Oh, I am one of the 204 Boys from the early 70's.

pier - for the most part, the pier sucks. its usually small and mushy. that said, there are days when the pier can get really, really fun, but only like 7 days out of the year. if theres a solid sw swell (and you dont like trestles) then the pier may be the best option. and all the old time local guys are full of shit, trust me.
