Surfing, Long beach
Posted July 1st, 2011 - 6:27 pm by from Riga, Latvia (Permalink)
Hi everyone!

So I am finally ready to learn surfing (one of the things from my bucket list this summer) :)I am planning to go to long beach,NY some time soon, but before that I wanted to ask for all the surfers in this group for some surf tips or smth, because I have never tried surfing and basically don't know anything about that...Also maybe someone knows some good instructors there and some surf rentals? If someone wants to join me in this "journey" you are more than welcome, I need a company for that...the more the merrier:)

I know you can rent boards at gilgo beach (near jones beach) and the waves are pretty nice out there. I dont know if they also have lessons. Ive tried surfing in hawaii and failed but am willing to give it another go. My fiance tried and was pretty good, maybe he can help

hey- hope this gets you in time! the waves are pretty good in long beach, and a lot of surf shops around here rent boards
the guys at the surf shops can give you the names and numbers of instructors but this family has been around surfing and lifeguarding forever : http://www.skudinsurf.com/ they can handle lessons and rentals and stuff
