Charleston’s beaches offer a variety of surfing experiences, so choose according to your skill level. At Folly Beach, the most straightforward of surf spots, you’ll find bigger, more challenging breaks well suited to short boards, while the Washout, where Hurricane Hugo wiped out a swath of shoreline, has quick, tubular waves. Make the trek out to Sullivan’s Island or Isle of Palms for more solitude and waves that are better suited for long boards.
