DJ May Kwok to Open Rockaway Beach Pop-up Shop

Event producer turned fashion DJ May Kwok is opening a pop-up Rockaway Beach surf shop on July 20, just another reason to favor the local beach over “out east.” The New York native, who grew up in Queens and took her first surf lesson at Rockaway Beach a few years ago, put it best: “Why would I try to go to Montauk or the Hamptons every weekend when I can just take the train to the Rockaways?”

The Notion, a pop-up beach shop that she says is for the “active fashion girl,” will be stocked with Cynthia Rowley wetsuits, A Peace Treaty accessories, Prism swimsuits, and other up-and-coming designer goods curated by Kwok. Ahead of her retail spot opening (you’ll be able to visit until Labor Day weekend), Kwok created an exclusive mix to get you in the local beach-y mind-set.
