About Commercial Pier

Also called Anglin's Pier, Commercial Pier is located in Lauderdale by the Sea to the east of Commercial Boulevard and is one of the few surf spots in Fort Lauderdale to recover completely from beach restoration programs. It is easily accessible and breaks well on either NNE swells or windswell conditions. Anglin's is also the site of an annual ESA contest.
