The Single Fin Showdown is an annual surf and skim festival held in Stuart. Last year, the Showdown attracted 150 competitors and 1,500 festival spectators. “Single Fin” means that contestants in the event ride 60's and 70's Single Fin Shortboards (provided) for the shortboard divisions and any board 9' and up for the Longboard divisions.

Sebastian Inlet is part of the east coast’s surfing epicenter and one of the biggest beach breaks on the Atlantic Coastline.  The inlet is located at the southern end of Sebastian Inlet State Park in Brevard County and Indian River County.  It is home to the largest concentration of surf shops and board builders.

Just north of Vero Beach, Palm Beach County,12 miles straight up U.S. Highway One, and 15 miles south of Melbourne, the Sebastian Inlet was originally cut in 1872.  It was known as Gibson’s Cut.  The settler, David Peter Gibson, attempted to open up a cut into the Atlantic Ocean.  He did not acquire title to the property where the digging took place until 1885.  At the time, the cut was only 260 feet wide and the distance was only 120
