First of all: people unfamiliar with the area will ask, “Is there good surfing in West Palm Beach?” not understanding that West Palm Beach doesn't really have a beach. Surfing on Palm Beach island is a different story, but the only kind of West Palm Beach surfing is wakeboarding at Shark Wake Park. Our Palm Beach County slice of paradise is not only renowned for its stunning beaches and dreamt-about lifestyle, but also usually has the best surfing in all of South Florida (except for that late September 2022 blast from Hurricane Ian that pretty much bypassed the Palm Beaches completely and blew up in South Beach). So, in a strange, but particular order, let’s look at the best Palm Beach surfing and other surf spots near West Palm Beach.

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. 

The Single Fin Showdown is the perfect for families and those interested in watersports like surfing and skimming.

Fall is officially here, but it's still hot enough to enjoy our beaches and many water activities on the sunny South Florida coast. From a relaxing kayak paddle on the river to swimming with sharks in the deep blue, there's something for every water-lover in Palm Beach County.

Kayaking puts you super close to the water's surface, so you can see manatees, dolphins and turtles swim right up next to you. Some of the best places to rent a vessel and take a refreshing paddle include Peanut Island, Okeeheelee Park, Jonathan…
