    Group Surf Lesson

    (1)
    For a crime-fighting mutant turtle forced to live in the shadows, surfing the sewers of NYC might be the only option available. For everyone else, there's Rockaway Beach. Shredding waves at this hip Queens destination happens to be one of the great little-known recreational thrills available to those residing in the concrete jungle, and it all begins with a 2-hour group lesson. Kick things off with some footwork pointers on the sand, then paddle out alongside your instructor. Learn to read and catch the waves, pop up, and maintain your balance once you're standing. The typically gently rolling waves of Rockaway are perfect for a surfing neophyte looking to get his or her feet wet. Before you know it, you'll be wearing board shorts, bleaching your hair, and robbing banks in a dead-president mask. Watch out for crime-fighting mutant turtles.
