I keep running into the term "Folly" when looking at spots in the south carolina area... I have googled this term every way I can think of, and it retuns no results with regards to the ocean at all... Folly, by definition is a Foolish Act. As far as structures go, Follies are defined as structured that are built for looks, that have zero function.... So, when they are discussing "Follies" in SC, are they refering to old broken piers or jetties that no longer function??? For example... This beach says. "Paddle out next to the folly"... Watch out for rocks... etc. etc... Everything down there is called "FOlly Beach road... " Or Folly this and that,.... So, with regards to surfing and nautical terms, WHAT THE *&^$ IS A FOLLY? A pier? A jetty? A rivermouth? None of the above? Im lost here... someone on here has to know!
