A cultural surfing exchange and a teen girls surf meetup will happen at the ocean beach at Napeague Lane in Amagansett on Sunday. From 9 to 11 a.m., the Shinnecock Youth Clubhouse, Native Like Water, and Black Surfing Rockaway will host the exchange, which is meant to get Shinnecock youth into the water and surfing while strengthening cultural bonds. It is open to Shinnecock people of all ages, but only 10 spots are available. Those interested have been asked to R.S.V.P. to [email protected] by Saturday.

The teen meetup will follow from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is meant to support teenage girls, many of whom stop surfing in their teen years.

It will also honor Long Island tribal nations and feature visiting guests. More information can be had by emailing [email protected].

Grain Surfboards of Amagansett is among the organizations supporting the events.
