Sand enthusiasts and water intermediaries are agitated over the potential for Hurricane Earl to dampen their Labor Day weekend. But those who own a board have different sentiments.

“It’s gonna be double overhead on Friday – double your height!” Jessica Findley, a Brooklyn resident, told the News. (See photos of the deadliest hurricanes in U.S. history)
