The Inertia

New York sustains 8 million people, and its heart, Manhattan, sustains 1.6 million. It is the cultural hub of the world. In its vast complexities, surfing only bears a minute portion in the mores of its citizens. To expand this small portion, as to alter the perpetual path of surf culture, Michael Powell, PJ Raia and Ben Powell aim at being evangelists of surf through this featurette spotlighting the Big Apple.
