Growing up on the South Shore of Long Island, I was raised on the beach, and it was the center of our universe. From hot summer days to brisk winter walks, the beach provided a backdrop and an escape that was always within reach. It was almost inevitable that surfing would make its way into my life, with so much time spent on the shore. It was just as inevitable that Noah would eventually start offering surfboards and surfing gear.
