New York City is not known as a surfing mecca. Sure, you could hit Rockaway Beach and catch a few waves, but it’s not exactly like carving up the crystal clear waters of Hawaii. Casey Neistat, as he’s wont to do, doesn’t accept that premise. For Independence Day, he took to the East River to give you a little tour of NYC via surfboard. Not only does the viral filmmaker get pulled along via boat; he gets dragged through the water via—wait for it—drone. What better way to see the city?
