Skip the Gym, Hit the Water The same Hampton beaches that draw water worshippers with their soft sand are also home to a bevy of water sports. Island Surf School in Westhampton Beach holds week-long surf classes during the summer, as well as private lessons by pros; this is also a great spot to nab a new pair of sunglasses, swimwear or even a new surfboard. If you're looking to join the stand-up paddleboard craze, Hamptons Paddleboard offers lessons and rentals at both the North and South Forks of Long Island. Their guides are all certified professionals that cater to all skill levels with leisure, extreme and even twilight tours.
