Rockaway Youth Program
Learn to Surf
The Rockaway Youth Program runs each year, on Friday afternoons from June to August. It is open to all Rockaway youth, who can show up for free surfing lessons in partnership with Locals Surf School.
Our activities are designed to increase their awareness of plastic pollution, clean water quality and ocean-friendly gardens. The sessions are led by two surf instructors from the Rockaways, Mike Reinhardt and Mike Kololyan, and Surfrider NYC Youth Coordinator, Moe Magali.
