Quiksilver Pro New York Day 3

East Coasters, as you’ve probably noticed, are a prideful group. So after the first couple days of competition in shit conditions and with people all over the world complaining about the lack of quality waves, we were relieved when the good side of Long Beach finally showed.

It might not be a world-class reef, and it certainly gets better than today, but watching the world’s best go to town on a super rippable beachbreak is fun stuff for anyone. Crazy good air sections were available almost on demand and the younger generation on tour took full advantage. —Jimmicane
