A couple of trips

Traffic to/thru Folly Beach can be a pain at times
South end of Folly is a pay to park County Park. Higher tide has served me better there. Short paddle to the mouth of the Stono River which may provide some extra amplitude to the surf if insufficient off the beach.
North end Folly is first come parking and a bit of a carry to put in by Lighthouse Inlet. Ebbing tide provides some more kick aways out from the Morris Island Lighthouse - defunct.
Sunset Park is a very pretty neighborhood park to put in at and paddle out of Charleston Harbor past Fort Sumter. Low tide, the Fort is only passable in the channel. Sand bar is exposed. Watch for traffic in/out of Schooner Cove - party anchorage. Again Atlantic side of Morris Island there'll be some waves to play with.
You can always see if Scott at Sea Kayak Carolina wants to play hooky and go paddle.
