Quiksilver and the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) announced the Quiksilver Pro New York, set to take place on Long Island’s Long Beach from September 4-15. The Quiksilver Pro New York will be the 6th stop on the 2011 ASP World Tour and the first-ever ASP World Tour stop on the East Coast of the United States. The event will offer a $1 million dollar prize purse to competitors, an amount unprecedented in professional surfing. “
“When I was young, I remember some great waves on Long Island with my brother Sean and our friends,” said Kelly Slater, 10x ASP World Champion. “This event itself will be unique and kind of an unknown for us and bringing the ASP tour to New York will be fun cause there’s a big surf culture there already and some great surf shops.”
