This seasonally crowded pier provides easy access to above average waves. Picks up swell from the E, right around to SW and any N in the wind will be offshore.
Keep 250ft (83m) from Bogue Pier and pay to park in summer. Other piers on the island do not allow or tolerate surfing in the vicinity as part of an old and ongoing battle between surfers and fishermen (pier owners). Rules change annually at various breaks, like the Sheraton Hotel Pier, for instance, which is under new ownership and has eliminated public surfing access.
