- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
parking is easy. Wave is kinda' pathetic(what else in SC?!) but in summer it CAN get up to 6-7 ft. Summer swell size avg is about 4-5 ft. In september watch for some storms that fuel some good 8 ft waves! Winter is bout 2-4 ft. Post and Courier exaggerates wave size greatly. 4-5 ft in that paper means 1-2 ft in reality.
Very relaxed. Great beachside restaraunts!
It's a fun spot in summer and the rest or hurricane season but otherwise it's small. I'd take a shortboard. Hardly barrels and when it does it goes down almost all at once. You need to go FAST!

hey shut up - IOP for one doesnt suck and the waves are actually descent, and "anyonomous" whoever you are you don't have any idea what you're talking about because when it's 8 foot and glassy out here its just as good as sebastien or the outerbanks you must have only been out once cause i go everyday and i figured out the sets take forever to come in, but when they finally do, and kooks like you already left cause ur to impatient to wait, you can get some sick rides in. If IOP sucks i wanna know whats better. I've been to one place thats better and that's Pavones way down in Costa Rica

true dat - the pier is for garbage, but i live in Mt. Pleasant and i dont think the ride is worth it to go all the way to folly beach for waves that might be better. but sometmes IOP isnt that bad.

- IOP is straight garbage. And the people that surf here are garbage and need to just stop surfing now before any hot girls see them and they never get laid
