You wouldn't expect to find surf in New York City.
But just 45 minute train ride from downtown, you can find yourself on the shores of Rockaway Beach.
Photographer and newbie surfer Jena Cumbo went down to capture the female surfers of New York getting in the sea for a dawnie...
Despite being part of the North Atlantic, the waters here are warmer than the Pacific west coast of America.
Jena was inspired to get down to Rockaway in the early hours, after an actor invited her down to surf and take photos.
"I thought I'd give it a go since normally when I go to surf, I don't bring my camera gear with me to the beach!"
"There's a real camaraderie among the early morning surfers," says Jena. "You can really feel it."
The small cruisy waves over Labour Weekend were perfect for beginners.
Beach 91 and Beach 66 are the beaches in the area specifically for surfers and bodyboarders.
South-facing beaches, like Rockaway, are in a prime location to pick up the majority of the Atlantic's swell.
Late summer is best for consistent large swells - Rockaway can get crowded, thanks to its proximity to the city.
Jena is learning to surf herself - she bought her own surfboard a year ago and has been trying to get out there whenever she can.
There are plenty of surf schools scattered along the coast for those wanting to learn to catch their first wave.
We like Jena's photos because they show these female surfers as they really are - natural, relaxed, fresh out of the surf.
These women embody three things we really admire: strength, poise and style.
