Although the sign on the pier says Cape Hatteras Pier, everyone refers to it as Frisco Pier. Protected from N/NE swells by Cape Hatteras, it works best on anything with S in it. A snappy wave with occasional barrels, it’s offshore in northerly winds and can handle the bigger swells.

Generally much less crowded than the Lighthouse because it is far less consistent — until a S swell hits, which may pass by a lot of the spots to the north. Easy parking and camping.
