What is it that draws us to strange places for surf? It’s the thrill of discovery. The adventure of something new. And the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve experienced something very few other people have. Most of the time, these excursions lead us to faraway places across the globe, but what if we told you that there was a hidden gem right under our noses? Welcome to the lesser seen side of New York City. The side with sand, and a shore, and off that shore the occasional pumping day of surf. So watch and enjoy as locals Jeff Anthony, Peter Egan and Shane Murphy have a field day in the backyard of America’s most iconic city last winter.
