You're right though, IOP=Folly=Kiawah. The washout's waves will be slightly steeper due to the fact that the beach is literally washing away making the beach steeper. The jetties do help but there is no magnification, for the entire wave only for the peak right next to jetty.
For the folks that haven't been here before, don't be fooled by the Washout's "jetties", they're merely rock outcroppings meant to hinder erosion. You're not going to experience any sheltering from the wind or wave wrapping around these things.
OP, if you're basing your decision on surf. Pack your bags for NC. I'd advise you to come visit both places before you make decision based on a surf predictin' site. I wouldn't make my decision after listening to the tourist that have passed through downtown Charleston (the peninsula) either. There are many scene's here.
Don't tell me this city ain't got no soul, ya just gotta poke around.

Being totally honest here, not being a smart***...can you enlighten me on the scene around Chucktown? I'd love to go back some day, but if I get stuck in another bar looking at a sea of salmon golf shirts, plaid pants, and gucci sunglasses and being forced to listen to 70's soft rock...there will be blood...and a trail of bodies. Man can only take so much.
I know Clutch plays there on occasion, so there has to be something going on around there. I don't mind getting off the beaten path either.
A bit off topic so if you want to PM that's fine, unless the OP or others are interested.

Those are just a few places that represent a better picture of Charleston, and not just the touristy mainstream crap most people go for.
Edit, didn't realize you just wanted music venues. Many of those places also have live music.

Thanks Brew! And no, doesn't have to be music venues, just places to get a good drink with enough dirtbags and freaks for me to feel at home and hear some decent music on the jukebox. Pretty much all I need.
Ahh Clemson, so what's the deal on this Thanksgiving thing? I've been waiting for the details and info. Plus, I need you to send me a bus ticket......plane would be even better.
Oh I don't eat turkey, I only eat pizza. So tell your servants to keep that in my mind.

Quick question that might have already been asked/answered - How's the surf at Kiawah? Is it worth bringing a board? Any decent spots within biking distance? Thanks again!
