Quiksilver Pro New York Lay Day Photos

September 5th, 2011 by John Zanussi

Day one of the Quiksilver Pro New York is in the books. Although a lay day was the call for today there was plenty of action that went down at the event site here in Long Beach. The opening ceremonies took place at 11am with Peter Mel introducing a handful of the pros, followed by a prayer and some live music from Quiksilver’s Hawaiian ambassadors Mel Pu’u and Titus Kinimaka. Afterwards, the day was filled with a few expression session heats followed by a tow-at session. 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 »

Tomorrow at 8am will be the first call for the Trials for the Quiksilver Pro New York.

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 »

City of Long Beach Canceling the Quiksilver Pro New York? (Updated)

August 29th, 2011 by John Zanussi

The internet is currently blowing up with rumblings that the City of Long Beach is trying to pull the plug on the Quiksilver Pro New York. This past weekend most of the East Coast got smacked up by Hurricane Irene and a lot of damage took place where the competition and festival for the Quiksilver Pro New York is supposed to take place. However, early this morning, Quiksilver sent out an email and posted on their site that the event will go on as planned. Then, at 5pm today, Long Beach Patch posted a story that the City of Long Beach has canceled all the festival events (concerts and bmx, skate and motocross demos) but the surf contest would still go on. Now, at 10pm, waves of rumors are making their way across facebook and twitter that the entire event has been canceled. 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 »

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 »
