Ten years ago we collaborated to start the first ever New York City Surf, Skate, Music and Arts Festival in Rockaway Beach. We have lobbied for a surfing only beach as well as skatepark at the infamous 90th street beach/boardwalk location. The city parks dept. granted us that request in 2005, since that time we have provided the community with this family friendly "FREE" festival ever summer.   Nyc parks dept. has co-sponsored the event since its massive success, with attendance reaching in the thousands. The event runs from 10am to 6pm and a Surf & Skate contest runs throughout the day along side live music acts from around the world. A full shopping village is available to walk through and shop as well. Come visit us and witness Nyc's number one ocean front extreme sport event. Save the date!! June 13th, 2020
