About States Avenue

The area is bordered by Garden Pier to the north, which has a good left, and the new Steel Pier to the south, which sometimes has a challenging right peak. Both piers feature a nasty bottom of concrete and steel rebar, so this break picks up any swell that moves. Breaks well from knee-high to double-overhead. The best waves are the lefts off the groin in the center of the break, and the right or left bowl farther south down the beach. The rights on the north side of the groin can get good, too.
