On a N/NE swell, this pier can produce long lefts on the south side, with plenty of shorter rights as well. This is the opposite on the north side, which is generally less crowded. Very consistent on higher tides with occasional barrels and good shape.
Easy parking north and south of the main parking lot in front of the pier, which used to be off-limits unless you were fishing or using the pier facilities. Fortunately, Hurricane Floyd devoured the end of the pier and ended the fascist fisherman-only laws. Unfortunately, some of the local surfers have taken on the enforcer attitude in the always crowded conditions.
