Just when you thought East Coast surfers couldn’t have it any better this year, The New York Surf Film Festival comes to town. The festival showcases surfing’s newest productions from every corner of the sport, in the iconic indie Brooklyn venue of Nitehawk Cinemas September 19-20.
During a year where we witnessed more big-waves, aerial progression, and even shark attacks in decades, the 2012 showcase is a must for anyone in the New York area this week. Check out newyorksurffilmfestival.com for more
