The Inlet and Pier Spot ID
Reliability: very consistent
Best: Swell NE | Wind W
Sea Temperature Today is: 5.0 °C
The Inlet and Pier in Maryland is an exposed beach/Jetty break that has very consistent waves and works all around the year. Works best in offshore winds from the west with some shelter here from south winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Take care of the strong rips here.
