Georgia’s coastline sits west of a wide continental shelf. There is surf, but it’s fun and fickle at best. The best spots need a big hurricane swell or Nor’easter storm to get really good. Best in the fall and winter. In the summer it gets super hot, and the waves are usually super flat. There are tons of unexplored barrier islands along the coast that are rumored to have great spots, but they are only accessible by boat. Georgia has strong rip currents because of the large difference in high and low tides.
