Traveling South...Fifth Stop: Folly Beach Island (part 2)

by Camellia Staab January. 12, 2019 310 views

Surfing in Folly Beach is a big thing. The best surfing in Folly is the area best known as "The Washout". Knowledgeable surfers claim this is the ideal area where you can experience the perfect waves on the South Carolina coast. Hurricane Hugo was responsible for "The Washout". Where a block of homes once stood, the wind now blows unimpeded across the beach, through the wetlands and then to Folly River. This wind effect is what experts claim causes the water to "roll" so well.

Thank you. It really was fun watching these guys, although to me the waves were tiny. It seemed like a lot of work for nano second thrill.

Unfortunately, we did not even though it was on my list. My daughter had had enough of me shooting and wanted to have more time in Charleston so I gave in smile
