Many people don't know that quality surfing is accessible less than an hour from the heart of NYC, and you can get there by subway, bus, or ferry. However, if you've ever been to Beach 90th street in Rockaway, you'll know that summer time swells can get very crowded. Better surfing is available in the Rockaways, especially when you know a local with a 4x4 pickup truck and all the equipment necessary! Spend the day with me, find the less crowded surf breaks and check out the natural beauty NY beaches have to offer. If we're hungry after surfing, I can show you some of my favorite places to relax and enjoy a meal. This experience is designed to be a personalized surfing/surf-training session rather than your typical Rockaway "surf school" lesson. I work with all levels of progressing surfers. Whether it's your first time on a board, or if you are trying to take your surfing to the next level, I will be able to provide instruction customized for your needs.
Full time surfing nomad, part-time NYC local surf guide. Born and raised, life-long surfer, from Rockaway Beach, NY. I've been teaching surfing, making art, and traveling for the last 8 years. After surfing many different regions abroad and in the United States, I can still say that NY has lots of great, uncrowded surf to offer; you just have to know where to look! I offer surf lessons and coaching, but also guided surf day trips in the tri-state area and beyond. All experience levels welcome.
Transportation from the train station/ferry landing to the beach in Rockaway is optional and provided at no additional…
I've got surfboards and and wetsuits available if you need, or bring your own!
We can go surf the parts of Rockaway that aren't available by public transportation, or in the off season, we can even venture out to the areas where there is 4x4 beach access. Just have to take a look at the surf forecast and choose the best spot for the predicted conditions. And shhhhhh! these spots are secret!
最多可有2位年满18周岁的参与者参加。 Guests must know how to swim. I must be informed of any prior injuries before booking.
We will need to go over all details of pickup/ drop off location, and where we will surf/ surfing experience, and what equipment is necessary, so that we are 100% prepared for the day.
