I have kayaked Folly many times. If you want to surf, you go the to washout (Northern end of the island). The river and marshes offer wonderful exploration, but are better at high tide. At low tide, the silt (called Pluff mud) narrows the channels considerably and smells terrible. My favorite part of kayaking at Folly is the dolphins play alongside you.
Camping is at James Island County Park. (15 minutes away). James Island Park is the site of the East Coast Kayak Festival.
There are many condo and house rentals on the island. Lastly, there are at least two kayak rental services on the island if you are not taking your own. One is next to the post office. The other on Bowen's Island (basically at Folly). If you need more details, I can reach out to my family that live down there.
