Title: Some aerial shots of Long Beach, Atlantic Beach and Rockaway
Post by: SeaCliff on October 09, 2014, 07:18:47 PM
Got a chance to fly with grommet the other day. Crazy kid went and got his pilot's license, and this was my first chance to go up with him. He took me out of Islip, along the South Shore and up the Hudson and back. Snapped more than a handful of shots - here's a few:

Has anyone surfed the spot in the 2nd picture?  I've always wanted to try it, but never remember to check on a decent swell that might work

Lots of problems trying to surf that spot. Yes, there's definitely a wave on a decent swell/right wind/right swell angle, but the rip coming out of the channel wants to take you out to sea.

So you're telling me it doesn't work like a reverse Manasquan?  :P

Hahahhahaa...well....more like I'm telling you that you need to find someone willing to sit on a ski and play rescue all day while you surf. If you happen to find that person, let me know - I'm in!
