April 22nd, 2013 by Samantha Rupert

Surfers are amazing creatures. No matter what life throws their way, surfers are characteristically unfazed by setbacks and they never give up. Long Island native John Beattie was a lifelong surfer up until 2007 when he suffered a stroke. Due to residual weakness in his arms and legs, Beattie had to retire his surfboard. Instead, he picked up his camera and began to document his irrevocable love for surfing. More »

Island Surfboards // Local Shaper Legacy

April 3rd, 2013 by Samantha Rupert

The south shore of Long Island is rich in surfing history. As a sport, and more importantly, a lifestyle, surfing has been gaining popularity since the mid-1960s. Over the years, many local surfing families developed reputations for quality surfboard shaping. Their shaping legacies were handed down from generation to generation. But Tommy Grimes, the 22-year-old founder of Island Surfboards in Massapequa, has a more unconventional story. He didn’t inherit a shaping legacy, he’s building his own. More »

NY Loves NY // A Sandy Fundraiser

March 22nd, 2013 by John Zanussi

Tomorrow night a friend of mine is hosting a very great fundraiser to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy victims. The event doesn’t have much to do with surfing but as you all should know we’re based out of Long Island and a lot of our friends and loved ones were effected by the storm this past October. The fundraiser will take place at the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden in Astoria, Queens and along with great drink specials there will be a silent art auction, great raffles and more. The best part, a good amount of the proceeds will be donated to a handful of local charities. More »
