NY Loves NY // A Sandy Fundraiser

March 22nd, 2013 by John Zanussi

Tomorrow night a friend of mine is hosting a very great fundraiser to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy victims. The event doesn’t have much to do with surfing but as you all should know we’re based out of Long Island and a lot of our friends and loved ones were effected by the storm this past October. The fundraiser will take place at the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden in Astoria, Queens and along with great drink specials there will be a silent art auction, great raffles and more. The best part, a good amount of the proceeds will be donated to a handful of local charities. More »

Hurricane Leslie Photo Dump

September 13th, 2012 by John Zanussi

September in New York is, was, and forever will be my favorite month of the year. Warm water, amazing weather, and usually great waves. Last year Hurricane Katia provided the East Coast, and more importantly, the Quiksilver Pro New York, with a ton of great waves. This year’s wave maker was Hurricane Leslie and she did a fantastic job at delivering the goods. Leslie sent swell from Puerto Rico to the Canadian Maritimes and everywhere in between. Lucky for us here in New York we had a week or so worth of waves with a few days of offshore winds making for some great conditions. Picking and choosing my days to not go into work I was able to score a handful of good sessions and take some photos. More »
