Long Beach, NYJuly 15th, 2013 – Sponsored by NYSEA, the fourth annual NY Surf Week will be held on National Blvd. Beach in Long Beach July 17-21. NY Surf Week was started as a memorial surf contest for lost New York surf legend George “Geeza” Geiser. It features surf contests, skateboard contests, family night on the beach, concerts and much more. “NY Surf Week has evolved as a bigger and better event over the past three years,” described co-founder and internationally-recognized big wave surfer Will Skudin. “While Superstorm Sandy wreaked widespread devastation last fall Long Beach is back in business, and NYSEA invites everyone to join us in the celebration,” he stated.

Notably, NY Surf Week teams up with not-for-profit Surf for All to offer activities for adults and children with disabilities. Pro surfers will enable visually impaired and/or blind individuals – as well as children with severe physical and medical disabilities from the Henry Viscardi School – to experience the waves and rides of their lives. “The idea behind these events is to make the joy of surfing available to everyone,” described Skudin. “What once may have seemed impossible is now possible. These outings help to open minds not just to surfing, but to the belief that they can overcome any obstacle.”

See Events Schedule below for a complete list of all the “gnarly” activities for surfers, skateboarders, artists, party animals, music lovers, adults and children. Visit their Facebook Page or www.nysea.com/nysurfweek for more information and to register for NY Surf Week activities. NY Surf Week also is sponsored by Vita Coco Coconut water and WRV Surfboards.
