The inlet is up for a 1000’ extension of the south jetty.This will block N and NE swell from the area,this area is the most consistent wave in Fla. Not too mention a nice hollow barrel when its on. Please take 3min of your time to sign the internet petition to save the wave…thanks. The address is savesymrnainlet.com . Again ,thanks, we can not afford to lose any waves…especially in Fla. Peace and waves… http://www.savesymrnainlet.com

Thanks njrc for correcting my typo…NOW SIGN UP PLEASE…peace and waves… http://www.savesymrnainlet.com
okay, signed, stamped and sent… I think this would make a good Current Events project for school… a little hands on observations. Or maybe just one last surf at that fine spot…
it is a big deal, but i dont think it will kill the wave. ponce breaks just as well, and catches those northeaterns…i personally always prefer surfing ponce, but i signed the thing. dj
Is there a chance it could improve the surf? I mean, they built it in the first place and, I’m sure, that before the jetty it was typical beach break. Now it is great. Same with Sebastian Inlet, and Newport Wedge. I like jetties as long as they are perpendicular to the coast or oblique, never parallel. What about those ankle snappers you got there in New Smyrna? That place has more shark attacks than any other spot in the world. You get, like, eighteen per year. That’s no joke. I read it on the International Shark Attack File. I often wonder how that feels to have those things snap at you like that. Stupid fish!
Thanks Sean. I just signed. I didn’t even know about the petition so I’m glad you spoke up. I’ll tell my friends too. I’m just as worried about the Minorca Condo assholes pushing to shut down beach-driving. Ask the beach rangers about the crap they’re pulling. We’re going to lose our beach access if they win. Fairmont- those aren’t shark attacks they’re shark nips. they happen in knee deep, cloudy water when young sand-sharks(2-4’) mistake swimmers feet/hands for a mullet. Quick nip, 3-stitches and the “attack victim” is interviewed by the action news reporter on-camera. I love it, cause it helps to keep the crowds down. God knows the NSB inlet needs all the crowd control help it can get! 30 years surfing the inlet twice a week @ dawn, no nips (or attacks either). Shark Bite Capital of the World!!! Yea-baby, spread the word.
Yeah ,that minorca place is unreal. I usually surf south of there now and I hit it on a good swell a while back…man how it changed. They(minorca) have clogged up the area,mass influx of people for sure,that place is huge and now dominates the skyline of what was once a mellow low rise area towards the south jetty.sucks… I am not sure about the possible improvment with the extension,I am not aquatic engineer. But I am sure it was not studied thoroughly…they want it done for the boaters? Money talks and f-the enviroment/waves ehh? What a goofy world. I have seen tons of sharks at NSB ,but no more than anywhere else. I kinda like the nippy bastards…and as much as they talk it up,the crowds are still insane. Crowd control…they’re out there…peace and waves… http://www.savesymrnainlet.org
