Bring your longboard, funboard, and maybe one of your real short-shortboards with a some width and thickness. Its a place to just have fun. The area is public and not too many people surfing, but you may have to dodge some of the swimmers. If i missed anything in any part of this, correct me
Myrtle Beach is the redneck vacation capital/magnet of the Carolinas and Virgina. Every hillbilly will be on the beach with their mudflaps, budwiesers, and older significant others trying to dress like a 19 yr old Brittany. At the same time, somehow its a great golf mecca also. Two completely different social and economic representations. There's a few real surf shops there, "The North Shore", and a new one in a shopping complex. There's also a Berts. Coastal Carolina isn't too far (25min S) and UNCW is just up the road (70min. N)
I go with my family for fam. reunions every late summer. Its a good area for young kids, lots of things to do. The water is nice and for the majority of the time safe and calm for them. I've had many fun days here. You can squeeze/force a few turns out before the waves die on a typical day. Never been there though when it gets overhead.

Drew - well, alot of rough talking, anyways, some good places to surf are springmaid pier, Apache pier (but watch out they will ticket u), in front of the Hilton, 44th S North MB, 27th S NMB, 8th N NMB, Cherry Grove pear (the far one north isnt a fishing pier) and some secret spots u wont find. I hope everyone has fun but do respect us locals.
