Grand Opening: Uncle Sam’s Surf & Surplus


Uncle Sam's Surf & Surplus

Uncle Sam’s Surf & Surplus has opened in Rockaway Beach, bringing a new Army & Navy twist to the traditional surf shop.

Run by an ebullient Lou Harris and Danielle Huber, the shop carries a wide selection of camouflage apparel and camping gear, as well as Union Surfboards.

The store is a fashion offshoot of Uncle Sam’s Army Navy Outfitters. Located at 37 West 8th Street, the store is one of the few remaining Army Navy stores in New York. According to their press release, the shop will “cater to the local community by carrying locally made surfboards, skateboards and surf apparel…as well as great authentic recycled gear and unique military inspired apparel.”

Uncle Surf, as the shop is known, will be hosting a beach clean up with other local organizations on May 21st, and will be participating in the Rockaway Beach Fashion Night on May 25th, at the Community House.
