Last Thursday I landed at JFK on a red-eye from San Francisco. Chris (my brother) picked me up and we took the Ocean Parkway home to check on the waves, which despite it being July with a steady south wind blowing, didn’t suck. A nice treat for Long Island’s forgotten son.
We surfed Democrat Point (Demo), and apparently there was a shark sighting earlier that morning. Sharks are rare for Long Island, but if anyone’s seen the movie Jaws, they should realize that the gnarly shark fishing character Quint in the movie was inspired by Montauk fisherman, Mark Fundus.
Overall fun day of surf. No one in the water except for myself, Chris and a shark.
