Surfing is currently restricted around the Montauk Point Lighthouse. The Chapter has been in discussions with the NY State Dept of Parks and Historic Preservation to open up legal surfing. The surfcasters are the main opponents to surfing access. The Chapter has successfully defended tickets in court given for surfing in the park.
Our beaches mean so much to us. They are where we live, where we work, and where we come to play. Our beaches are the entryway to our ocean and we believe that beaches should be accessible to everyone. This is why our network of staff experts, volunteers, and members are determined to keep our beaches accessible for all to enjoy.Learn More
