Rockaways Field Trip: Storm Surfers and Roberta’s Boardwalk Pop-Up
This image has been archived or removed.
Summer is unofficially upon us, and while beach weather is still somewhat elusive, we couldn’t help ourselves. The Rockaways were calling and Boogie obliged last weekend, with post Tropical Storm Andrea waves reaching close to ten feet.
Sandy-related destruction is visibly ubiquitous along the coastline, and even though sections of boardwalk are completed, the vast majority of the walkway is a skeleton of concrete studs. New beachfront additions include trailer-looking modules on stilts…
Not that any of this has stopped the surfers from charging pipe. We saw a couple dozen or so in full wetsuit garb, looking like seals and riding them waves. Effin crazy.
