Hurricane Igor New York

September 22nd, 2010 by John Zanussi

  Hurricane season is in full swing in the Atlantic. The last storm to send waves our way was the mighty Hurricane Igor.  At one point, Igor was a very strong Category 4 storm packing winds of up to 155mph. He was also a very large storm covering close to 1000 miles from top to bottom. Thanks to Igor’s track, he sent Long Island and most of the east coast a couple days of really good waves. Luckily for us, Evan Conway of Red Dawn Productions was out there getting some pretty epic shots of the swell. More »

Tropical Storm Colin

August 3rd, 2010 by John Zanussi

  Okay East Coast, here we go! The third tropical storm of the season is making his way through the southern Atlantic and it’s looking like we’ll see some waves from this storm. Although Colin won’t have the strength we hope for, as the NHC says Colin won’t reach Hurricane status, his track is looking great and it should send a decent shot of swell to much of the east coast.

July Swell Water Shots

July 13th, 2010 by John Zanussi

New York and most of the Northeast saw a pretty fun run of waves this past weekend. I was in the water all day Saturday and it was one of those perfect summertime surfing days. The crowds were thin, water is warm enough to trunk it, there was a decent size swell in the water and by late day the winds had gone offshore. Long Island summer swell at it’s best. Meanwhile further east on the island, our friend Evan Conway from Red Dawn Productions was out in his backyard enjoying the waves and capturing the waves with his camera. He was nice enough to send over a handful of shots which we have in the gallery. More »

This is also the first Atlantic hurricane in the month of June since 1995.

Lifted Research Group Boardshorts

June 22nd, 2010 by John Zanussi

  Lifted Research Group better known as LRG is a creative lifestyle clothing company based out of Santa Ana, California and they are releasing a line of boardshorts for this summer. They aren’t really known for their surf products but after these baggies drop we’ll see where they stand. The designs are pretty sick but I’m interested in seeing how good these things do after being worn in the water for a couple hours. No one likes rashes, no matter how cool your shorts look. More »
