Celebrate International Surfing Day on June 15 by fully immersing yourself in New Smyrna Beach’s vibrant surf culture. Consistently named one of the top surf towns in America, NSB is the perfect place to ride the waves. With rock ledges four to five miles offshore, the breaks are plentiful and ideal for those craving an adrenaline rush. Here, adventure-seekers will find some of the finest wave action on the Eastern Seaboard.

New to the sport? Not to worry. Beginners and experts are all welcome in this laidback surf town. Get on board with our friendly locals for the experience of a lifetime. Book a lesson with the oldest surf shop in NSB, Nichols Surf Shop. Instructor Chuck Carter will meet you at the beach with a board and wetsuit, so you’re ready to ride the waves right away. Or, sign up your grom (that’s surfing slang for kid surfer) for a summer vacation camp they’ll never forget. Jimmy Lane Surfing Academy has offered surf camps since 1985—just look for the blue school bus, an iconic sight in New Smyrna Beach.

When you need a break from the sweet rush of the ocean, head over to the New Smyrna Museum of History, where you’ll find an exhibit dedicated to our favorite sport. Get a closer look at boards from various decades, surf art, magazines and other memorabilia. The museum is free to enter, although donations are accepted.

Want to look the part? Shops like Red Dog, Rip Curl and Quiet Flight carry everything you need to take on the waves. Find items like swim trucks, wetsuits, and even high-quality surfboards. There’s also branded gear that’s perfect for repping NSB once you’re back home.

Whether you choose to get in on the action or just watch from shore, it’s easy to get fully-immersed in the surfing culture of New Smyrna Beach.

About the New Smyrna Beach Area
The New Smyrna Beach area includes the communities of New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, Oak Hill, Osteen and Port Orange in east Central Florida. New Smyrna Beach is an eclectic mix of old and new; of subtle sophistication and bohemian soul that is as “real” as Florida gets. It occupies a notable place in history as the second oldest city in Florida, site of the largest single attempt at British colonization in the new world. In 2018, New Smyrna Beach celebrated its 250th birthday. The city’s barrier island is recognized worldwide for its incredible surf with Surfer magazine recently touting it one of the “Best Surf Towns in America” and National Geographic magazine including it in its “World’s Top 20 Surf Towns”. Accommodations range from charming bed and breakfast inns to family-size condominium units and oceanfront hotels. Natural attractions include 17 miles of sandy beaches from Ponce de Leon Inlet to Canaveral National Seashore and North America’s most diverse estuary – the Indian River Lagoon. Two distinct downtowns along Flagler Avenue and Canal Street and connected via the Waterfront Loop welcome visitors with independent restaurants, unique shops, artisanal coffee shops and art galleries.
