102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH
“Let’s go surfing now, everybody’s learning how!” Once mostly a West Coast thing, Surfing in Myrtle Beach has now become one of the most popular ways to enjoy the ocean surf along the Grand Strand. Our smaller waves and somewhat forgiving, sandy ocean bottom, are perfect for beginning surfers, though the region has produced countless world surfing champions. Not ready to buy a surfboard? Never been before but want to try it? No problem, as there are many Myrtle Beach surf shops that will rent and train you in private or group lessons. Once you’re hooked, the surfing gear you’ll need, including all styles of surfboards and wetsuits for cooler months, is affordable for almost everyone. When the waves and wind are really up, you’ll find all the area’s hot shots showing off their moves; aerials, fakies, backsides, and more. Why not learn the lingo and join them?
