On November Monday, November 26th, 2012 at Anthology Film Archives in lower Manhattan the NY surf community will come together to help raise funds for Hurricane Sandy Relief and Recovery. NY Surf Stories is an evening of locally produced surf films that focus on the New York surfing community. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the communities of Rockaway Beach, Long Beach and many others suffered catastrophic damage and tragedy. NY Surf Stories seeks to bring the surfing community together to show our resilience and solidarity in the face of adversity. The films selected cover a variety of genres and styles, all focusing on surfing in New York and what it means to be a surfer in this incredible community. All proceeds will go to Waves for Water, a non-profit where 100% of the fund go to those effected by Hurricane Sandy. Raffle prizes vary from a free hotel stay at Casa de Olas in Nicaragua to an R2 Wetsuit from Patagonia to many more…
The event will be co-hosted by Mikey DeTemple and Waves for Water’s Jon Rose.
