This spot is great for shortboarding, but on the smaller days it's fun to longboard.

Fun - Well too small to shortboard, so I grabbed an old foamboard out of my garage and used that.  Really fun, vibe is great. Everyone is having a good time, no wave fighting, just good vibes.  Went surfing until 8 at night, best waves were at ni

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.
