When planning your trip to North Myrtle Beach, you will find it is home to the best surfing spots in East Coast for new surfers. On a typical day, the waves are of average size making it easier for the first time and less experienced surfers to navigate the waters easily and still have a great time.
The knee-high waves are best suited for body surfing which is the best place to start for those who want to become good stand-up surfers. If you have a bit of experience and would like to try standup surfing, you can keep tabs on the waves at Surf-Forecast to determine the appropriate time. Look for breaks exceeding two-to-three feet to make sure you’re poised for a fun day on the water.
