Classic example of average East Coast pier surf, warts and all. More rights than lefts on both sides because the winter nor’easters provide a right breaking back towards the pier on the south side. Any W in the wind for offshore conditions plus the side/onshore protection offered by the pylons on the rare occasions you can surf near the pier.
Mad summer crowds compound restrictions like no surfing between 10am-5pm or within 300ft of a pier full of trigger-happy fisherman. Fight for a meter to park. Highly consistent in its averageness.
