This new Brooklyn Surf Flea market sounds like a swell time

Sure, summer is officially ending on Friday, but the endless summer where surfers and other water loving creatures live burns on even through the coldest winter (and the best surf around here is the winter swell anyway). As such, a coalition of local surfers is putting together the first annual Brooklyn Surf Flea this Sunday at Union Pool. The flea will feature local vendors, shapers, non-profits, beach apparel makers, craft jewelers and a surf school, so even you kooks can learn how to wave slide by next summer. Plus, the bar is offering 2-for-$5 Tecates, a $5 pineapple punch and taco specials. Plus, meet your local surf community, which is bigger than you think. And just in case you’re one of those “there’s no surfing in New York!” jerks, prepare to get dumped, brah.

All proceeds made by the hosts NYC Urchin and Ohlas will be donated to Stoked Mentoring, an inner city youth development program focused on board sports, and Surfrider Foundation NY, an organization that works to protect NY’s waterways.
