New Smyrna Beach is well known for it’s ability to produce consistent ridable surf year round! Head this way to escape flat days in your home town, or surf New Smyrna Beach every day by becoming a local. Surfing in New Smyrna Beach can be an awesome way to enjoy your beach days. If you are a beginner surfer, the best place to surf is along the beaches or near a lifeguard. Lifeguards are on duty during spring and summer at all of the major beach entrances and parks (from south to north): Bethune Beach park, 27th Avenue park, 3rd Avenue/Clancy Park, Flagler Avenue, Esther Beach Park, Crawford Rd beach ramp, North Beach Community Park, and Beachway Avenue. If you are an experienced surf, you will likely opt to surf the inlet. The inlet is an extremely crowded surf spot and the most common place for dangerous wildlife interaction. Beginner and intermediate surfers should avoid the inlet on busy days for safety reasons. Not to worry, usually the sandbars along the beaches offer great waves as well and no crowds! Below is the camera at Toni and Joe’s Patio just south of Flagler Avenue. This is a great spot to surf out front then head in for an ice cold beverage and fantastic lunch!
My personal favorite New Smyrna Beach ocean forecast tool is through NOAA but for hourly weather and forecasting Accuweather does a very good job. Since we are an ocean front community, the weather in New Smyrna Beach is highly dependent on ocean activity and weather systems coming across the peninsula from either coast.
