No one shop!!!

I saw in the internet sports authority in there, but i think their products are not very good like ronix, liquid force and others.

I'm not sure there are any in NYC, but there's a good one in Pt. Pleasant, NJ.

Ask for Craig, he'll help you out.
(what are you looking for?)

Theres a store at about 70th and York (midtown east). Its called Pipe Dreaming, its mostly a snowboard and skateboarding store, but i brought my bindings from them a few years ago, it was so so cheap. I dont know how much stuff they'd have in there at the moment though?
Definantly worth a look, i also brought some dvd's.

Thank you, both Daves.

I saw soswakeboard in the internet, but i will stay in NY only 5 days for a job and i think i will not have much time to spend on it.

Howell, i will go on that shop, maybe they will have something.

Dave W, i'm just looking for new models of boards and maybe for a new life vest. I need a good handle and rope too.

I'm brazilian and here the prices are 3 times more than the US one.

Thank you

You can try these guys. They're on Long Island. If they don't have what you want they can probably at
least steer you in the right direction. &

Manhattan is not exactly a hotbed of wakeboarding, you'll understand more when you get there.

everytime I have stopped by island watersports they were closed. Even when I called and asked them if they would be open. That was years ago though

SOS has the best selection of boards and gear in our area, worth the trip IMO.

You can even take the train from NYC to Pt. Pleasant beach. Look for the "north jersey coast line" here:

I'm not sure if you could walk to SOS from the train station, but Craig @ SOS could answer that.

Fala Alexandre,

comigo aconteceu a mesma coisa, fui trampar em NY e nada de wakeshop, mas é muito tranquilo chegar na SOSwakeboard, 1,5 hora de trem, a estação fica a 100 m da loja. Pessoal da loja são gente boa pra caramba, lá tem tudo! Loja Irada!
Qualquer coisa é só falar.
