The Rockaway Times
PrettyEpic Stuff!
It’s certainly been a long time
since I can remember two sepa-
ratehurricane events in the space
of oneweek.
Last week we started off with
Hurricane Gaston waves and
ended the week with Hurri-
cane Hermine bringing on an
onslaught of intense energy
kicking up waves well past the
“double-overhead”
category.
Interesting, too, was how much
more intense it was in Rockaway
compared to Long Beach, where
they face more south. At any
rate, surfers all over Long Island
got what they needed, despite
the knee-jerk stupidity of our
Mayor calling for the beaches to
be closed to try to prevent surf-
ing. While things are seriously
worse all over the world, it’s a
very sad situation when you feel
like you’re living in police state
and making a free form life style
of surfing a crime.
Bodysurf Contest this Saturday!
Don’t forget that we have the
First Bodysurf Contest coming
up this weekend, registration at 9
a.m., contest starts at 10 a.m. The
Rockaway Beach Bodysurf Un-
dergroundwith Jeremy Jones and
Michael Poindexter have done
a great job organizing this event
and bringing Hawaiian bodysurf
legend Mark Cunningham to
our shores. This will be an epic
day! Sign ups at Beach 84 St Jetty.
Awards and ceremony at Rippers

RBSC with a screening of Dirty
