Surfing With Sharks

New Smyrna Inlet swarmed with sharks over Memorial Day weekend

If you live in Volusia County, Florida, add surfing with sharks to the list of Memorial Day weekend activities. While out in about waist-deep water with his family, New Smyrna Beach resident Steve Anest noticed multiple dark shadows swimming beneath them. “They were anywhere from 3-5 feet in length and not overly aggressive,” he notes on the YouTube post. “It lasted about 45 minutes and was truly amazing!” That’s quite a joyful explanation despite the area’s informal title as the shark bite capital of the world.
