Locals Surf School

Inspired to share the experiences and camaraderie of Rockaway Beach's tightly knit surfing community, three friends launched Locals Surf School to do just that. Developing surfer technique for riders of all levels, the trio leads instruction that ranges from small-group beginners' lessons to one-on-one coaching. Each lesson takes place along Rockaway Beach, whose lively boardwalk affords diversions such as taco stands and pizza joints. The staff also claims lifeguarding experience, which includes CPR and first-aid training, and maintains an FAQ page to anticipate questions such as, "Do I have to get wet?"
