Easy access, park at the pier and go surf. The sandbars on either side of the Mercer Pier can break well on the right swell and glassy or offshore wind conditions. Bring any board but be prepared for closeouts, find the good shoulders.
This spot is always crowded when there is a good waist high wave. Best to catch in the morning, winds start kicking up in the late morning and make the best day of waves in weeks look like shit. Not nearly as crowded on the North End of the Pier, more spread out and a better opportunity to catch your own wave. Low Tide is key on small wind waves.
Carolina Beach is 20 miles down the road and has much better wave shape and power. The thing about Mercer Pier and northern surrounding sandbars is the crystal clear water and chill crowd. During the low tide the crowd starts spreading up the beach to exposed sandbards, creates good vibes in and out of the water. You will probably see people from the line-up chillin at the bar.
