2011 Quiksilver Pro New York Surf Contest Still On
Despite the severe damage done by Hurricane Irene to the beaches of New York, the community has pulled together and the 2011 Quiksilver Pro New York is still scheduled to take place.
Quiksilver is working closely with the City of Long Beach to preserve the heart of the ASP World Tour surf contest scheduled to start on Sunday, September 4 in light of the impact of Hurricane Irene and concerns for the Long Beach community, which suffered significant damage from the storm.
The 2011 Quiksilver Pro is scheduled to start its 11-day “holding period” on Monday, September 5. The Quiksilver Pro Trials presented by Unsound Surf will run on Sunday, September 4.
The situation has been changing daily, and naturally, the city resources are focused on hurricane restoration and clean up as first priority. In that context, the ASP has been informed by the city that the festival and music components of the event are no longer achievable.
The 2011 Quiksilver Pro in New York is first and foremost about the surf contest and Long Beach has an incredible surfing tradition and spirit. The ASP is committed to holding the tour event at Long Beach to promote the sport by bringing together the best surfers in the world to this terrific community.
