    On Hilton Head, there is that really long sandbar that shoots off the north end of Port Royal Plantation. You can see if from Folly and Burkes. It goes out about a mile off the beach there. I've never gone and surfed it, but I would assume on a NE in the winter that may swing in at the right angle would hit that bar very nicely and create a fisherman's island kind of effect. And yes, it is the Black Tip breading ground, as well as where Mary Lee was pinged when she was hanging out on the island.

    Would love to hear from someone that has been out there, but it definitely has potential. It has to break. It has all the factors you need.

    There should be the same sort of thing on Hunting Island right across the waterway on the South End. I would assume that it would be better on HHI so its not breaking out in the boat channel or anything.

    I have surfed infront of Capers awhile back, it was good and fun but you had to find a section where you didnt get taken into the dead trees that are still in the water from hurricanes. Hence, they name it the boneyard. At low tide you can also see oysters grow on the beach in between the trees, so that makes it super sketchy. I also tried surfing an outer sandbar between capers and bull but there was to much tide and it was a crumbly and then back to swell kinda wave. Very sharky feeling too, probably in the water for a total of 3 minutes there. Everywhere off Edisto sucks, its like 10 feet deep 3 miles out, but like everywhere it gets its day here and there.

    even on the biggest hcane and noreaster swells ive never seen the south end sandbars go off to a point worth surfing but it has, i think its because there are more under water bars then the main bar really slowing down the swell also there are a lot more then just black tips in there bull,tigers and whites in large amounts compared to inshore but f it right. i know a few that surf by it when its on which is never and its shore pound fin breaker. there is also a few beaches in the sound i haven't been to since i was a little kid that have potential at the right direction and a few jetties. seen some big swells on boats while fishing dont see why they couldn't make it to the inside. last time i was at hunting there was a shark attack 2 hours after i got out of the water and we saw some 8 foots swimming by the line up while i was there, had been no swell for a while so there was about 20 people. the attack wasnt that bad though. your biggest risk is being a swimmer and drowning my neighbor lost his son saving his wife and kids to a rip.

    I also have heard from the coastguard helicopter pilot that if you saw what he has seen, you wouldnt step foot in Edisto waters, and he travels the whole coast, saying it is the sharkiest island by far. Great fishing though

    Very interesting. We go to Capers and Bull fairly often, and I have thought about bringing my board someday. However, the trees you speak of make me a little nervous. I swim in that surf every once in a while, and there are a ton of trees under water. I didn't notice the oysters, but it is good to know they are there. I have heard there is a spot somewhere around there that seems to be pretty impressive, but it seems like you would see similar surf on parts of IOP. You mention Edisto off-shore. Have you ever been to that little sand island that forms between Seabrook and Botany Bay? It looks like it could work with the right swell. Probably shark heaven out there.

    Yeah its called Deveaux Bank, never surfed it though. I do believe that it could work off the right tide and swell but never seen it going off. It is a slender little sandbar that juts out into the ocean off the island. Probably like 10-15 feet wide. and of course it is SHARKY as anyplace can get. Friends of mine caught a 1000 lbs Tiger shark near there.

    Yikes! Um, I don't usually think about sharks well surfing this area, but that would make me think twice about trying the spot out.

    Love this thread. A lot of wonder, intrigue, and speculation. Pretty much mimics all the threads I've ever read on Fisherman's Island. Lots of chatter, but not many that have actually scored it when everything is working right. But that's the point right...catching a rare spot with just a couple friends out makes the hunting/exploring all worth it...and brings back a new excitement to surfing again. Last fall I surfed the bay side of Fort Story (i know, its no secret) on a long period NE swell and south winds and got chest high righthanders moving down the bay. Never thought a point break existed in VB in all my 30 years. Really opened up my mind.

    ^ exactly thats what its all, i know there is a lot of treasure in the carolina/Georgia islands. its just a matter of time/swell/ and having a boat.
