Surfing at Rockaway Beach

3년 전

This fall we started going to Rockaway Beach a lot. Since I live in Brooklyn, Rockaway is one of the closest spots to get to, although it still takes a bit. Any time the surf looked decent (and by this I mean we would take practically anything we were so desperate to get into the water haha) me and my brothers would rush home from school to hop in the truck and drive to Rockaway. These photos are from some time in October.

Here's dad carrying his longboard down the ultra-steep stairs!

And of course we jam to this on the way there:

What makes surfing at Rockaway so cool is the mix of beach and city. When you look towards shore as you're riding a wave it seems crazy that it's happening right next to all the giant buildings.

Around October the waves in Rockaway Beach get bigger. It is a very beautiful beach and it adapts very well to those who follow the surfer mode


Yes it's a great spot! Do you surf there?

I visited NY few times during winter season. Hope to visit there summer or fall. Looks awesome.


Definitely! Summer is really fun but it gets a bit too hot- especially in the subway.

Wow, the photos are amazing. And I'm about to check out the Ramones on Spotify if they're there. I always like finding new music :)



Ah! I had already heard their music before, just didn't know who it was : "Hey Ho Lets Go.."
