92nd Street is considered the main hub of the Rockaway surfing scene, but the beach has plenty of peaks scattered along its length. The wave for the most part is an average beach break that occurs over shifty sandbanks but every dog has it’s day and on big winter easterly swells the place can really get going. The biggest problem with Rockaway is the insane crowds that flock there as this is the closest surfing beach to New York City, but the cold winters thin out the non hackers! Loads of surf shops, surf schools and amenities in the area.
