Join the Summer Beach Fun at New Smyrna Beach

New Smyrna Beach

I recently spent a few weeks at New Smyrna Beach. Had a blast watching all the beach action. Join the summer beach fun going on from dawn to dark.

Beach Pong

Games

All kinds of games were being played on the beach. There was beach pong. There was bocce ball and bean bag toss and frisbees. I noticed a dad who had drawn out a football field (small) on the sand and was teaching his son post patterns. I observed a game of lively soccer with 3-4 generations involved. The grandad in the group was very skilled and he was enjoying himself. There were amazing kites and even drones overhead.

Beach Zumba from our balcony

Exercise

From the balcony, I watched Zumba classes, group calisthenics, and professional-level athletes working out. Of course every morning starting at pre-dawn, there were beach walkers/strollers/ runners and bikers. A local 10K/5K race started and finished just below our balcony. Skilled runners to mom's pushing strollers as they ran, to kids and dogs, and some crazy dudes running in shark costumes.

Ocean fun

Swimmers and boogie-boarders abounded of course. I was amazed at people on stand-up boards entering the surf and making their way out to calmer swells. Kite surfers sped by and leapt high in the air.

Sandy Stuff

Of course there were kids scampering about with plastic buckets and shovels. While walking, I had to dodge elaborate sand castle structures with moats. I was tickled by a group of 4 adults and a teenager vigorously digging a deep hole. When I turned and walked back that way, the boy was buried in the sand up to his chin.

Back when I was a kid, there was a big beach blanket and towels, and perhaps a lawn chair or rented tent/chair. Now beach goers build mini cities. Nowadays there is every manner and size of tents from party tents, to two person huts to makeshift tents extending from open SUV tail gaits. Sitting on the balcony in our condo watching people set up these elaborate structures is very entertaining. I must say many of them are very skilled and organized. Next year I am going to start timing them. The funniest new beach gadget I saw was a beach cushion/chair that started out with two people holding a canvas tube high in the breeze until it fills up with air like a balloon.

Events on the Beach

I walked by a wedding at dawn. I watched a church service on the beach leading to baptisms in the surf. A couple celebrating their 5 year anniversary was on the beach in their wedding attire with their 5 year old son taking pictures. I stopped to help them with their pictures. In the evenings after most people have left the beach, I saw clusters of beach goers enjoying little bonfires.

The coolest new gadget on the beach this year was this little motorized skateboard, complete with headlights and tail lights.

The same guy, who must be advertising these things, motored all over the beach and roads and sidewalks. I saw him out every day. And never once saw him fall.
