While Hurricane Irene caused all the music events to be called off and created a crazy rumor mill speculating on how the entire contest was canceled, the Quiksilver Pro NY has finally kicked off in Long Beach, New York.
Today were the trials and free surf events, held in knee to waist high surf. It was a cool scene out in Long Beach. The waves haven’t been ideal and certainly aren’t on par with the conditions that these pros have already seen on the tour, but Hurricane Katia is hopefully about to churn up the ocean and bring a solid swell to Long Island.
I’m thinking this upcoming week should definitely be worth checking out.
