 Additional Information

Waves here typically are very punchy. They break hard and fast, and you've got to be quick. Real peeky lines, and on good wind days(NE, N) they can be very hollow and fun. Low tide can punish you though, dumps right on the beach. This spot is dependant upon the NE wind. If the NE hasn't been howling for a day or two then this spot is flat. Beach is constantly changin but on average the area right before the rocks is best.

Atmosphere

The rip here is evil. From the beach it appears as a normal looking break, but from the water it can be utter chaos. Great tubes, and very solid waves can be found here when it is on. Any other day and its flat. Locals are kind of fierce. Break holds somewhat of a mysterious look to it. Waves creap up from no where.

General

Berts is a great spot. Not one for beginners on big days, but its provides allot to learn from. Berts would be the best spot in Charleston if it wasn't for it being flat 70% of the time. On a scale of quality over quanity it is the BEST SPOT IN THE AREA.
