 Additional Information

Atmosphere

Bull Island juts further into the ocean than any other South Carolina beach. The spot picks up almost any swell. The northern and southern ends of the island can have very classic point like quality. The middle island is a nice hollow beach break. The bottom is a mix of sand, mud and old oyster bed. There are stumps in the water and the water is always very muddy. Sea life abounds: jellyfish, stingrays and some toothy fish.

General

If you really want to get away from the crowd, this is the spot in S.C.. Be careful. Most of the good looking breaks are on old oyter beds. The shells are packed into a hard black mud banks, which are amazingly shallow and sharp. The island is a wildlife refuge, so there is no camping allowed on the island. This is one of the last prestine areas in SC and supports a beautiful maritime forest. So, if you go, plan to take all of your garbage with you when you leave.

Hurricane Bill at Bull Island - Surfed Bull Island on Saturday during Hurricane Bill. The northern tip on a large swell wraps off right along the beach. Where it was on shore winds for Folly Beach it was off shore on Bull. I think the constant SSW winds are off shore on Bull. However, with the big swell of Hurr. Bill, it was only about 1/3 to 1/4 the size on the northern tip. Expect it to be smaller but some of the longest rights I have seen in SC. Only the 4 of us out, felt like being in a different country and to have clean swell, wrapping off, and no Folly crowd- one hell of a place and fun time.
