It Doesn't Not Work | 5th Edition


The process of surfcraft design is not one limited to the big machines of the surf industry, or solely belonging to the heralded masters of the craft, it is a living folk art on an equally democratic level. It is a continually evolving conversation between local craftsman and the sea... and the creations that relationship spawns.

It Doesn't Not Work is a surf craft exposition that explores the process of the art & craft of surf-riding design, the event aims to discuss these experimental shapes, work-in-progress projects and tried-and-true formulas. It is a time of conversation and camaraderie, good times and good razzing. Largely local to the Northeastern East Coast Coastal Neighborhood, IDNW is truly open to all geographic comers provided they can pay their own way.

The 2018 installment of the gathering will take place September 14th-16th at the Rockaway Beach Surf Club in Rockaway Beach. After four years at Picture Farm Gallery, we are excited to move the proceedings closer to the inspiration! Submissions are OPEN.

Film Screening of GIVEN | Mother's Day Weekend

Join us for a free screening of GIVEN to celebrate Mother's Day. Saturday May 12th, at 8:30pm (run time 1hr 12mins). Let's give our mother's a night out to enjoy some cocktails and tacos! We all know that they deserve a night out!! Presented by Lava Girl Surf  & Rockaway Beach Surf Club.

Given is the simple yet powerfully contemplative story of a unique family legacy come full circle. Told through the visceral experience of a 6 yr. old, Given follows legendary surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin from their island home of Kauai through 15 different countries in the quest for surf and to fulfill a calling handed down through generations. Set in wave after wave of stunningly visual earthscapes, Given blooms into a tender yet stirring exploration of a young boy’s understanding of life through his familial bonds and their reverence for nature. Deeply moving, Given gives us the humbling contrast of a small voice voyaging through a big world as it finds its way home again.
