Over the last coupla days, The Internet’s been rife with rumour that the Quik Pro, NY was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene’s recent assault on, among other places, the event site at Long Beach – (Shea Lopez’s Twitter even proclaimed this a 100 percent confirmed fact). So, as it seemed the thing to do, your pals at Stab gave event-organisers Quiksilver a call to see what all the fuss was about.
What we found out was that the surfing contest will definitely go ahead. Quiksilver’s Asia-Pacific marketing manager, Simon MacGregor, says: “The City of New York declared the site at Long Beach was unsafe. The other parts of the event (skate, BMX, music, moto X) aren’t confirmed to run, but we’re definitely going to roll with the surf event. The impact of Hurricane Irene is still pretty messy and we’re just waiting it out to see the damage. The Allegria hotel, where most of the surfers are staying, has had waves going through it.”
So, y’can breathe easy on that one. There will, at this point, definitely be a surfing world tour event in Long Island, New York, starting on September 1st. In, like, two days.
