Unlike our other trips, surfing is the least predictable type of adventure we can plan. Sometimes, the weather is overcast. Other times, the tide just doesn't want to cooperate and there are no swells. And other times, the water's just sketchy. Oh, and that Rockaway Beach boardwalk is still under construction from Hurricane Sandy. But, it's our local surf beach and we're going for the day. Bring your towels, flip flops, and plenty of sun screen, because if the surf's up, we're surfing (and here's a handy beach cam and surf report by Surfline that we'll be checking that weekend) That said, this time of the year, east coast swells can reach reach 4 or 5 feet and the water is just starting to get warm enough that you don't need a wet suit. Board rental is approximately $50 for the day from whichever surf shop is renting on the beach.
WHERE WE MEET
We’ll be meeting on the plaza at Beach 67th Street on the side that faces the beach at 10am. It's about 60 to 90 minutes from anywhere on any of the other boroughs, so plan accordingly. We'll be on the beach until it gets boring, so if you're running late, don't worry, just call. Afterwards, we're headed inland for one of the awesomest Thai food spots in NYC! Yeah!
It's a beach. You'll be on the sand and in the water. You know what to pack. I'm bringing a cooler with "supplies". I suggest you do the same. To learn where we're meeting and how we're getting there, reserve your spot below.
