Park your car about 200 meters from the jedis and hit a crowd. Watch for unexpected company on a ride and keep your eyes open for local groms. a lot of communicating is neccesary if you want to leave with your board in the same shape it was in when you got there.
Fairly friendly....not too many egos but people talk smack if you snake some of their waves because they need something to complain about.
Its fun during a swell and its always crowded during the summer. This spot could be better because the sand-bar is about 3 feet deep with lurking "angry-fish". the dolphins swing by a lot and that puts on quite a show.

- localism is the same as racism, dumb. If your from new smyrna and you don't like me driving in from outta town to surf Gods waves then suck it, and dont leave your town cause then you'll be in somebody elses and I hope when you go to get gas some local kicks your ass for taking their pump you idiot. Haha and i like the guy whose name is Cumskey.

Surfing Smyrna - I used to surf at the inlet all the time yesrs ago, just decided to get back into surfing again. Like when I was first learning to surf I stayed south of the jetty and as I got better I moved closer and closer to the jetty and finally joined the line up. Treated all with respect and got the same in return. Now when I go back I'll stay out f the line up until I shake the rust off, common sense in surfing will take you a long way.

UCF surfers - I'm a sophomore at UCF and have been surfing the inlet for about 2 years now.
Two things I've noticed, it's pretty damn consistent with Floridas standards, and everyone there rips.
Yea you've been living in NSB all your life, nice job, you're officially a North Florida Red Neck with a wet suit rash.
No one owns this wave except mother nature herself, and from the looks of it she's not too happy with how it's being managed and has decided to take it back, one sand bar at a time. Maybe when we all learn to get along we'll get some good surf a bit more often.
