The Pier in South Carolina is an exposed beach/Pier break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. The beach break offers mainly right hand waves. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Watch out for rips, rocks, locals and pollution.
