July 27th, 2011 by John Zanussi

In a press release I recieved this morning, Quiksilver has made it official that the first of two wildcard spots for the Quiksilver Pro New York will be New York’s own Balaram Stack. While this is what most of us expected, I’m pumped to see it be official and that Bal will have a chance to compete with the world’s best surfers in his backyard. The second wildcard spot will be determined between 16 surfers during the Quiksilver Pro New York ASP World Tour Trials. We’ve got the lineup for that below. More »


Long Beach Surfer Daniel Bobis Missing in Sumatra

July 25th, 2011 by John Zanussi

A surfer, high school math teacher, and coach of the Long Beach HS surf team has gone missing in Indonesia Sunday morning. While on a surf trip in Sumatra, Daniel Bobis, 32, was surfing with a friend when he took off on a wave and never paddled back out. Moments later his board washed up on the shore with no sign of Daniel. This is crazy sad and my condolences go out to Daniel’s family as they continue to search for Daniel. More »
