About Folly Beach Pier

Occasional long lefts off the southern side of the pier on a NE swell. Mid tide incoming will see steeper, hollower, shifty peaks that will get a bit mushy at dead high if it’s not very big. Low tide will close out over 4ft (1.3m).

Restrictions include no surfing within 200ft (66m) of the pier and no surfing from 10-6pm in summer. The hazard list includes jetskis and jellyfish, plus stormwater runoff.
