The Surf Lodge Montauk

There’s a wave of likability for surfing in NYC of recent years. First with the hit surf brand – Saturdays – and now with The Surf Lodge Montauk riding the fashionable wave with toes on the nose. Perhaps it’s because surfing in NYC is so exotic and difficult, but in any case who cares… There’s something ultra cool about the whole concept and especially about The Surf Lodge.

First built in 1967, The Surf Lodge has become an international, much sought-after destination for local and international travelers looking for the perfect place for relaxing, wellness, sunshine, surfing, fishing, exceptional dining and unparalleled majestic sunsets.

Known for its raw untouched coastline and as the ultimate summer surf and family destination, The Surf Lodge is well placed. During the long summer days when the area is thriving with local fishermen, artists, travelers and surfers, The Surf Lodge creates a resting ground to find calm within a sense of community and word on the street is that the parties are full of NYC’s trendiest socialites. Certainly the concert line up is a pull factor.

With its timeless character and true bohemian sophistication, The Surf Lodge has paid meticulous attention to every detail, presenting an ambience that parallels the easy, dream-like quality of Montauk and its locals. If you’re in town I highly recommend waxing up your board and heading up there.
