What are the best surf conditions for Garden City Pier?
Gets good from waist high to overhead, does not handle more size. We recommend riding a longboard most days and a shortboard when it gets good. This break is suitable for all levels of surfers. The surf here does not get good often (4/10) and is usually insanely crowded (9/10). Offshore from the Northwest. Best swells from the East, South, and Southeast. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini in the summer when water temperatures rise to 28 degrees. In winter we recommend wearing a 4/3 when temps drop to 14 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
