 Additional Information

Fripp is the most south facing beach in SC, but usually is alot cleaner than hunting island, on a good hurricane swell when the wind is clocking strong out of the NE and hunting is shit, come here it will be sick. usually weaker than hunting but picks up better swell and is powerful during a good south swell
