Jennette's Pier in North Carolina is an exposed beach/Jetty break that has consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the west. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It's sometimes crowded here. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.

Visitor Reviews of Jennette's Pier

avebearc from UNITED STATES writes:

I was at Jennets pier, paid my 12 dollars to fish and was on the end of the pier. I agree it is partitioned off for pin rigs etc. But on Sunday July 22 2012 my cousin and I were at the end of the pier fishing and some local big shot comes up and says you got to move your poles out of the way this is just for pin fishing in a rude manner. I went to the front desk and asked if he can just go out there and move other peoples poles out of the way and proclaim his right to be where other people were fishing they did not know the rules. then security came out at my request and started talking and joking with the rude person. I will recommend anyone that likes to fish at the end of the pier to go to another that when you pay you can fish where you find a spot so some local big shot cant move you out of the way I will never go back to Jennets pier and will tell all my friends and relatives not to patronise that pier. they get a bad reputation from me also my cousin is a stage 4 cancer patient and had to listen to that rude jerk. Do not go to Jennets pier.
