Oceanic Pier Surf Guide

Oceanic Pier in North Carolina is a quite exposed beach/Pier break that has consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the west. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
