Stoked Mentoring x Loomstate Surf Session

We took the day off and headed to the beach with Stoked Mentoring, a non-profit focused on empowering inner city youth in New York City and Los Angeles through board sports.  Though many on the Loomstate team are seasoned surfers, our skills were trumped by the pure enthusiasm and dedication of the teens, all new to the sport.  It was a truly inspiring day and we are certainly going to work together in the future.  See how you can get involved!

Loomstate and Stoked meet at 67th Street, Rockaway.
