Located right behind the Nomad Surf Shop (Florida’s first surf shop ever built) the Boynton Beach Inlet is a local favorite for both paddleboarding and for surfing. However, because this location is the open ocean we only recommend paddleboarding for experienced paddlers and not for first-time lessons since it is difficult to balance in waves. If you are an experienced paddler this spot is perfect! Past the sandbar at the inlet you will see Dolphins, Sea Turtles, Stingrays, and even a few Lemon and Spinner Sharks (which are generally very friendly if you don’t try to pet them). Because of the Inlet, the water is usually crystal clear at the change of tides.
This paddleboarding and surfing location is also perfect if you have a dog since you can walk your board out to the sandbar at low tide with them on top and push them into the waves.
Dog-Friendly Surfing and Rough Paddle Spot
Let our certified surfing instructors and dog-handlers teach your dog how to hang twenty. We have special foam dog-friendly surfboards and life jackets for dogs of all sizes.
This is our most popular spot to teach surfing since you can walk to the the sandbar.
*NOTE: Be sure to park in the North-end Parking lot with the boat trailers. There is a walkway that goes underneath the street, which leads out to the beach. You will be on the North side of the Inlet (not by the lifeguard tower)
