“A Hundred Miles To The End” // A Long Island Surf Film

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 »

Perfect New York Winter Day

March 12th, 2013 by John Zanussi

After lots of blistering cold days and a couple big snowstorms this past weekend warmed up and gave New York it’s first real glimpse of spring. With the warmth also came the most fun few days of surf in I can remember. Too bad the water temp was still in the 30’s. More »

January 14th, 2013 by John Zanussi

This is quite a powerful image for anyone that has ever stepped foot on any of the 2 miles of boardwalk in Long Beach, New York. Not long after Hurricane Sandy, it was determined that the damage suffered to the boardwalk was to great to fix and it would need to be totally demolished. More »

Hurricane Sandy Relief Fundraisers

November 12th, 2012 by Samantha Rupert

Hurricane Sandy was the most devastating storm to hit New York and New Jersey since 1938. It was also the costliest storm to hit our region, racking up damage costs comparable to Hurricane Katrina. Many families along the Jersey Shore and Long Island lost their homes and the death toll totaled more than 110 people. Now, about two weeks after the storm, there are still people powerless, homeless, hungry and freezing on Long Island and in New Jersey. More »

Hurricane Leslie Photo Dump

September 13th, 2012 by John Zanussi

September in New York is, was, and forever will be my favorite month of the year. Warm water, amazing weather, and usually great waves. Last year Hurricane Katia provided the East Coast, and more importantly, the Quiksilver Pro New York, with a ton of great waves. This year’s wave maker was Hurricane Leslie and she did a fantastic job at delivering the goods. Leslie sent swell from Puerto Rico to the Canadian Maritimes and everywhere in between. Lucky for us here in New York we had a week or so worth of waves with a few days of offshore winds making for some great conditions. Picking and choosing my days to not go into work I was able to score a handful of good sessions and take some photos. More »
