Memorial Day weekend draws ever closer, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few weeks on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #14: Go Surfing at a Hamptons Beach

The best thing about the pre-Memorial Day rush? You don’t have to share the waves! Nobody is hogging the beach anywhere on the East End, so feel free to surf without fear of crowding.

To all you prospective surfers or newbies, now is the best time to break out that board and hit the waves because no one is watching. Bring a wetsuit along though; the water is a bit chilly.

If you do decide to make your way to the beach, be sure to check the conditions. To those of you who don’t already know, surfline.com offers accurate forecasts, tide predictions, and even live broadcasts of the water at some of your favorite beaches.

Additionally, if you need some gear before you go out and ride the waves, make your way over to any of the local Flying Point shops (Flying Point Premium Surf in Bridgehampton or Flying Point Surf & Sport in Southampton are top picks, but visit the website for more store locations, flyingpointsurf.com). So stop reading this already, please, and pick up your board before it’s too late!

Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons #13.
