Rockaway Beach Surf Club

Look, we at Guest of a Guest wholeheartedly believe that New York City supersedes L.A. in every conceivable way. But...that doesn't mean we won't turn down a piece of Cali culture in the greatest city on the planet. Rockaway Beach Surf Club in Queens offers a beachy experience but with an urban twist. Of course, they offer tacos and tropical drinks, but the surf shack backyard is what you need to see.
