The New York Surf Film Festival kicks off Friday in the heart of the Big Apple, so we're doing a two-part preview of what will be on view over the weekend at Tribeca Cinemas. Surfers in the five boroughs would be remiss to not check out the action, take in some films, and party with the filmmakers and stars. For a schedule of screenings, and to buy tickets, click here.
