Sebastian Inlet State Park
Get your surf on
Surfing in Florida? Yep, Florida has produced some of the world's top surfers—think Cocoa Beach native Kelly Slater, crowned ASP World Tour Champion 11 times. To catch your wave, just head east from Orlando on Florida S. R. 528 (the Bee Line toll road), and it’ll drop you off in Cocoa Beach, smack dab in the middle of the best surf beaches—from North Peninsula State Park to the north to Sebastian Inlet State Park to the south. Beginners can rent a board and get schooled at Ron Jon’s in Cocoa Beach. Pros can ride the sets at the “first peak” on the north side of the jetty at Sebastian Inlet. In November, east coast and west coast surf dogs hang ten and compete in the Florida International Dog Surfing Championship at Cocoa Beach. Bow-a-bunga!
