Quiksilver Pro New York Trials Wrap-Up and Round 1 Heat Matchups

September 4th, 2011 by John Zanussi

After this morning’s trials, which were held in some rather crappy conditions here in Long Beach, we have the final list of surfers that will be competing in the Quiksilver Pro New York. Floridian, Asher Nolan was the big winner as he advanced over 15 other surfers in the trials, granting him a spot in the main event. There were a few guys I was pulling for to win the trials including late entry Aaron Cormican, trials for the trials winner Leif Engstrom, and not only the runner-up this morning but the guy I think surfed the best out there, Keanu Asing. It’s a bummer to see those guys loose but I’m stoked for Asher as this is his first crack at a World Tour event. Although he isn’t going up against Kelly Slater in his first heat as New York’s Balaram Stack is, Asher still has to face Mick Fanning and Heitor Alves in his round one heat. More »

Quiksilver Pro New York Pre-Event Photos

September 3rd, 2011 by John Zanussi

The wait for the world’s largest surf contest is almost over. Tomorrow is the trials and the day after is the first day of an 11 day waiting period for the Quiksilver Pro New York. Long Beach is already buzzing and luckily for me, I found a place to stay for the next two weeks a block away from the beach and a few blocks from the event site. After “moving in” this morning, I walked down to National Blvd and snapped the following photos of the pre-event happenings. More »


Quiksilver Pro New York Trials Heat Matchups

September 3rd, 2011 by John Zanussi

Tomorrow at 8am will be the first call for the Trials for the Quiksilver Pro New York. We had the lineup of trialists back in July when Quik announced that Balaram Stack would get a wildcard spot but, with Aaron Cormican getting a late spot in the trials, things have changed a little. Below is the list of surfers you’ll see in the water tomorrow battling it out for the last spot in the main event. More »

Better Late Than Never: Gorkin Gets A Spot in the Quiksilver Pro New York Trials

August 12th, 2011 by John Zanussi

It all started at the end of last month when the Quiksilver announced the surfers that would be competing in the trials for the Quiksilver Pro New York. Mixed in with a handful of international surfers were a couple of East Coast guys including, but not limited to, New Jersey and New York poster surfers Sam Hammer and Balaram Stack, respectively. Also from New York was the Trials for the Trials winner, Leif Engstrom. A few Floridians were on the list too, but to my surprise, there was one guy missing from the list who definitely deserved a spot and that was Aaron Cormican. Now, through the weird powers of social media and help from the 10x world champ, Gorkin has a spot in the trials. We caught up with him and asked him a little about how it all happened. More »

All this craziness will be taking place in Long Beach and as you can see in the event map above, the setup is going to be insane. More »


Balaram Stack Gets Wildcard for Quiksilver Pro New York

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 »
