Volusia County Breaks Shark Attack Record

Bull Shark

Above: The Bull Shark that didn’t get away.

2008 could easily be considered the year of the shark for Central Florida surfers. With 23 confirmed attacks, Volusia County (home to New Smyrna Inlet where most of the attacks occurred) broke it’s own record of 22 confirmed attacks back in 2001. The murky, fish-rich warm waters of New Smyrna Inlet offer some of Florida’s most consistent surf, thus creating a hotbed of attacks on surfers. Odds are you’ll probably at least see a shark if you’re surfing the Inlet, mostly those ferocious Bull Sharks, so it’s easy to see why we named it one of the world’s most dangerous waves.
