Tonnes of parking and fairly easy to get to. The best spot will require a paddle across the channel but its not too far.
The best spot hands down is the inside of the channel when its working. A really strong onshore wind will build up massive swell and push it through the channel. The waves actually build coming through and finally break on the sand bar on the east side right after the pier. Since I have found this spot it has become my favorite. There are only a few of us local surfers that go for it. I have seen it barrel at over 6ft very clean. Doesn't happen often but when it does it is incredible.
There are a few other spots to Surf in Erieau. The public beach will work half decent on any strong onshore wind but will be the best on ESE winds. There is also another spot on the far side of the opposite pier that you have to get to by paddling or taking a boat. It breaks like a reef but its all man made rock underneath so it can get a little hairy.
