Dania Beach

Edit Spot

Dania pier has some good days and some bad. It's very hard to predict the way it breaks because of the sandbar's shifting, but most likely it will be fun. I've seen it wedge, be a one direction wave, be A-frame, barrel hard, mush out, you name it. Go enjoy the ocean.

Fun spot for every surfer, no tough surf crowd but douche fisherman. Be respectful (especially if it's not your local break) and have fun.
Also, support your local shop by going to Groove surf and skate down the road on Dania beach blvd., 601 east Dania beach blvd.

Additional Info:
The fisherman are a*sholes, they will cast big weights at you so watch out. If anything go talk to them nicely and don't pick a fight, you'll make things worse. If all else fails use "self-defense" or tell the lifeguard and they will kick them off the beach. I haven't had any problems with sharks nor have I ever heard of any, but they are there (mostly spinners and nurse sharks, but you will see some scary bull sharks from the inlet and some reef sharks.), don't be scared but heed with caution because they can still bite the s*it out of you.


Follow US1 North from Ft.Lauderdale/ Hollywood int. airport until you get to Dania beach blvd.. take Dania beach blvd.. If you need any surf gear(ie. boards, wax, leash pad, clothes, paddleboard rentals etc.) stop by "Groove surf and skate" on the way. After following Dania beach blvd.to the bridge,go over it but in the middle make a right turn into the Dania beach parking lot. At the end of the lot you will reach the pier.
