The RockStock is a grassroots festival that was created in 2006 by:
Steve & Christian Stathis of Boarders Surf shop
Jimmy Dowd of St.James Clothing
Walker Hornung of Into the Whip Records
Ten years ago we collaborated to start the first ever New York City Surf, Skate, Music and The Arts Festival in Rockaway Beach.
We have lobbied for a surfing only beach as well as skatepark at the infamous 90th street beach/boardwalk location.
The city parks dept. granted us that request in 2005, since that time we have provided the community with this family friendly "FREE" festival ever summer.
Nyc parks dept. has co-sponsored the event since its massive success. The event runs from 10am to 6pm and a Surf & Skate contest runs throughout the day along side live music acts from around the globe. A full shopping village is present to walk through as well.
Hurricane Sandy demolished our beach community and entire neighborhood in 2012. This year we celebrate the full opening of the entire Rockaway Beach Boardwalk!
Come visit us and witness Nyc's number one ocean front extreme sport event.
