The New Yorker Video: A Surfer’s Saturday at Rockaway Beach

  • Short vid on the evolving surf scene that is Rockaway Beach. I admit it, I sometimes get nostalgic for the smaller, tight nit cast of characters from the late 90's early 2000's, but change is inevitable and this change is bringing solid investment into the community. It's also important to remember that the days of nostalgia that I'm referring to were also the days of change for Rockaway as well - I know there were plenty of people even then that were not exactly pleased about this "new breed" moving in, renting bungalows for their boards, and so on.

  • "Surfing in Rockaway" What a fresh topic to report on…Good thing they didn't pick a topic thats as worn out as octo moms vagina. I hope they write more articles before everyone quits surfing and takes up golf.
