About The Washout

The most popular and consistent spot in southern South Carolina. Semi-submerged short groins every 100 yards (91m) are a hazard at higher tides, but generally the sandbars are farther out. Can hold the larger swells. Mid incoming can deliver powerful, hollow waves.
Besides the rips and submerged chunks of jetty, there are also sharks, jellyfish, and territorial locals to watch out for.
