New York Surf Film Festival

The First Annual New York Surf Film Festival kicks off three days of screenings of independent short and feature films, cult classics, and world premieres from established surf filmmakers.  The first two shows are sold out.

“THE ROCKS” premieres tomorrow at 7pm and as described on the site ‘provides a look into the unexpected world of surfing New York City. Great waves break within the city limits at Rockaway Beach, where the concrete jungle meets the ocean. The juxtaposition of NYC culture with surfing is surreal, and “THE ROCKS” captures that rare experience on film.’

Here is some more information from their pr that went out last month.
