So you've finished your surf lesson... And you may be asking yourself: What to do now?  Explore Rockaway Beach of course! Look no further, because no one knows better how to have fun in Rockaway than The Locals

Here are Mike and Mike's recommendations for spots to hit up after your surf lesson:

Rockaway Beach Surf Club A place oozing with great vibes, The Surf Club is devoted to the love of surfing and is a staple in the local neighborhood. This is the perfect place to come after a lesson with indoor seating and a fantastic patio area. Not to mention, some of New York's best tacos! If you can't stop by after a lesson be sure to come to our 4th of July Party hosted here or another one of our events in the future!

Riis Park Beach Bazaar Riis Park is a beautiful beach located in upper Rockaway. The only downside about Riis Park Beach is that you can't surf there! This is a great place to check out after your lesson with tons of vendors set up on the weekends. Maybe you'll even see us there!

Rippers Located at beach 86th St on the boardwalk, Rippers has burgers, fries, and other great all-american food. We recommend trying the hard body burger. Going for a stroll on the boardwalk is the perfect post surf activity and we definitely recommend checking out Rippers next time you are in Rockaway.

Caracas Arepa Bar f you have't heard of Caracas, you should familiarize yourself immediately. This spot gained popularity in Manhattan and then Williamsburg, but whats better than a delicious arepa and cocktail on the beach? Maybe surfing, but this is still high on the list.
