This 13-mile stretch of sandy white beach on Florida’s Atlantic coast harbors major breaks. Walk your board down to the beach, or load up the car and drive right onto the shore. New Smyrna’s waves are known to be some of the most consistent in the entire state, and if you’re looking for an ideal spot for trick riding, well, it’s a match made in surfing heaven.
