Rockaway Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

The closest surfing beach to NYC, the crowds are more challenging here than the waves. Average beachbreaks that need a sizable swell to make it in here with big E swells bringing some decent lefts.

Always crowded with surfers who are as aggressive as Yellow Cab drivers. Parking spots can be found a few blocks back from the beach, where rip-offs are common.
