LONG BEACH, Long Island/New York (Wednesday, September 7, 2011) – Round 2 of the Quiksilver Pro New York has been called ON this morning, and will be commencing in cross-shore three-to-four foot (1 metre) waves at 7:30am.
Event No. 6 of 11 on the 2011 ASP World Title season, the Quiksilver Pro New York got underway yesterday with the world’s best surfers tearing into the playful peaks of Long Beach for Round 1 and today will see the beginning of man-on-man elimination competition with Round 2.
“The surf has increased slightly overnight and we’ll be commencing Round 2 at 7am,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “It’s not ideal conditions with the wind and the rain, but looking at the conditions we’ll have over the next few days, we’ll be making the most of what we have on offer today.”
Up first this morning will be Mick Fanning (AUS), 30, up against Balaram Stack (USA), 20, in the opening heat of Round 2.

Surfline, official forecasters for the Quiksilver Pro New York, are calling for clean offshore conditions with occasional light rain, and slowly increasing SE swell from Katia mostly in the chest to shoulder high range with a few head high sets. Longer lines sweeping in but still peaky/fun from yesterday’s leftovers.
