New Smyrna Beach: Surfer's Paradise

New Smyrna Beach, thirteen miles of white-sand beaches. Surfing in New Smyrna Beach is not just an activity, it’s a lifestyle. Ponce Inlet is easily the most consistent break in the United States, trailing only Huntington Beach in California. The waves are not the biggest in the world, but they are consistent; a virtual all you can eat buffet for the hungry surfer.

Beginners can learn the sport in safe waters and at the same time accomplished surfers can rip up the waves all year round. Every summer the American Professional Surfing Association holds one of its premier contests here. Surfers from all over compete. Landshark Spring Surfari Pro revived New Smyrna Beach this April with its first professional surfing event in fifteen years.
