 Additional Information

The fisherman are a*sholes, they will cast big weights at you so watch out. If anything go talk to them nicely and don't pick a fight, you'll make things worse. If all else fails use "self-defense" or tell the lifeguard and they will kick them off the beach. I haven't had any problems with sharks nor have I ever heard of any, but they are there (mostly spinners and nurse sharks, but you will see some scary bull sharks from the inlet and some reef sharks.), don't be scared but heed with caution because they can still bite the s*it out of you.

Atmosphere

Fun spot for every surfer, no tough surf crowd but douche fisherman. Be respectful (especially if it's not your local break) and have fun.
Also, support your local shop by going to Groove surf and skate down the road on Dania beach blvd., 601 east Dania beach blvd.

General

Dania pier has some good days and some bad. It's very hard to predict the way it breaks because of the sandbar's shifting, but most likely it will be fun. I've seen it wedge, be a one direction wave, be A-frame, barrel hard, mush out, you name it. Go enjoy the ocean.

Dania Beach - When surfing Dania Pier or North Hollywood Bch. aka."HOUSES" check out the new surf shop on Dania Beach Blvd. Surf World. Houses breaks good on a winter cold front, usually waist to stomach clean lines, lefts most of the time. Parking sucks unless you want to pay at Dania pier's parking lot and walk a little ways. If there is no rideable surf, alot of locals are into skim boarding...especially by the Pier.
