Updated 7/31: We are getting a better deal. Now 2 hours surfing lesson and still the same price. Also, new starting & ending times 10:30 am to 1:00 pm.
Hey summer is here. Let's go to Rockaway Surfing School to learn surfing again. This time we will have 2 hours training session to make sure everyone has enough surfing practice.
For the longest time you've been promising yourself, "This is the year I'm going to learn how to surf!" Well here you are about to make that dream come true! Rockaway Beach is about 50 minutes by subway from most parts of New York City, and taking surfing lessons in New York is one of New York's best kept secrets! Keep that promise to yourself and cruise out to laid back Rockaway Beach!! And to everybody else who may have taken a lesson in Hawaii, Costa Rica, California and has caught the surfing bug, you need to get out here and surf in your own hometown! Surfing is a blast, however if you are brand new, we really recommend a lesson or two. That should be enough to get you comfortable with the ocean, give you a feel for what type of board will be best for you, best places for new surfers to practice, purchase equipment etc...
