Ice Cream Headaches: Surf Culture in New York & New Jersey

Foreword by Michael Halsband. Text by Ed Thompson. Photographs by Julien Roubinet.

East Coast surf culture from Montauk to Rockaway Beach and Cape May

Unbeknownst to many who live there and to the throngs of tourists who stop by each year, the beaches of New York and New Jersey are home to a diverse and vibrant coldwater surfing community. Ice Cream Headaches captures a snapshot of this often-overlooked facet of life and leisure in America’s most dense metropolis.

Over a span of four years, writer Ed Thompson and photographer Julien Roubinet—who met surfing at Rockaway Beach—have logged more than 4,000 miles from Eastern Long Island to Cape May, interviewing and photographing the surfers, surfboard shapers, artists and documentarians who make up the scene. From local legend and Montauk fisherman Charlie Weimar to Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Finnegan to professional surfers with global followings such as Quincy Davis, Mikey De Temple and Balaram Stack, the New York surf community is a colorful one. Ice Cream Headaches highlights the surfers who experiment with new forms, materials, ideas and surfing styles in the often-frigid Atlantic waves.

Across 192 pages, the book features four essays rich with quotes and anecdotes, more than 110 extraordinary photographs and a foreword by iconic portrait and surf photographer Michael Halsband. Ice Cream Headaches takes the reader inside the surf breaks and stomping grounds of the surfers who call New York and New Jersey home, surfers who are willing to pull on a 5mm wetsuit, wade through a foot of snow on the beach and battle 30-mile-per-hour winds for a few fleeting moments inside a yawning barrel.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Savage Thrills

Jemma Scott

If there were ever a book that encapsulates the raw essence of people’s stories, and their sanctification of surf culture, this would be it.

BackWash Magazine

Noah Lane

As surfers situated on the opposite edge of the same ocean, the idea of this book struck a chord.

Huck

Packed into 192-pages, their findings expose a colourful community of die-hard surf lovers... unafraid to experiment with new forms, materials, ideas and styles in the treacherous Atlantic waves.

Memorial Day Staff Pick: Ice Cream Headaches

Memorial Day Staff Pick: Ice Cream Headaches

Julien Roubinet's 2016 photo of Maddie Peterson in Wildwood Crest, NJ, is reproduced from Ice Cream Headaches: Surf Culture in New York & New Jersey, a staff favorite for Memorial Day weekend. Capturing the East Coast surf scene from Montauk to Cape May, this beautifully produced photo book is the first of its kind. "Learning to surf well demands a masochistic impulse to lower the limits of your primal fear of drowning," Ed Thompson writes. "You achieve this only by repeated physically and mentally bruising encounters with nature's power. At the latitudes enjoyed by New York and New Jersey, you also need to be willing to do it in below-freezing air temperatures and 46 degree water." It's not quite that cold this weekend, but still! continue to blog
