Surf lessons

Every Sunday from May to September, Brooklyn Surf Club provides free surf classes to children age 6-15 that wouldn't be able to go surfing without our support. 

At Brooklyn Surf Club, we are a passionate community of individuals dedicated to supporting diversity and empowering young minds through surfing. Surfing is an activity that not only provides physical benefits but also contributes significantly to the mental well-being of children.

The surf lesson will take 90 minutes and include:

  1. Warm-up and water safety
  2. Surf techniques and practice on land
  3. In-water practice and guidance
  4. Feedback and improvement

You'll join us at Rockaway Beach, the only spot where surfing is allowed among all the beaches in NYC. It's where all the surfers gather, so you'll be in good company!

Please arrive 30 minutes before the lessons starts to prepare yourself. Surfboard and rash guard rental are included in the surf lessons. We recommend to bring a beach towel, sun blocker, and something to eat and drink. Wetsuits, boots and cloves can be rented at additional cost. 

If you need more information give us a call at (929) 949-5081 or write us at niels@brooklynsurfclub.com we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

    It will be directly at Beach 67. We have two stations:
    1. Directly at Beach we have two tents (white: Brooklyn Surf Club,  orange: Sierra Surf School) marked with a "Surf'n Smile Day" flag. This is where the surf lessons take place.
    2. Breakwater Surf Shop at Beach 67 subway station. This is where you will arrive when taking the A-train. Dell is the owner of the surf shop and he can give directions. 
  7. Can I re-schedule or cancel my free surf lesson?
    Yes, please make changes to your reservation until 24h before your surf lesson starts. If you don’t show up for your surf lesson without notice, you will be disqualified from further free surf lessons. We ask you to arrive 30 mins before the surf lesson starts, latest 15 minutes. If you don’t show up 15 minutes before your surf lesson starts, we will give your free surf lesson to another child on the waitlist.

    Absolutely, the more the merrier! There are many other kids around, so it will be a fun day at the beach. Please be aware that there are designated surfing and swimming beaches with life guards at Beach 67. There is no swimming allowed in the surfing area in order to prevent surfers colliding with swimmers.
