Quiksilver Pro New York is scheduled to start its 11-day holding period on September 5th. The Quiksilver Pro Trials presented by Unsound Surf will run on September 4th. It will be the first surfing contest to offer a 1 million dollar prize purse. Owen Wright goes into the event sitting at No.5 while Adam Melling needs a big result to stay in the elite events. Good luck fellas.

Update September 6th
Lay day . Hurricane swell coming. Owen Surf Ht 4 vs Jadson Andre and Bobby Martinez , Mello surfs Ht 9 vs Michel Bourez and Raoni Monteiro when the event kicks off.
Update September 7th
Mello and Owen both surfed well in the tiny conditions but finished 2nd in their heats. Owen surfs Ht 2 vs wild card Asher Nolan and Adam surfs Ht 9 vs Wilko when round 2 begins.

Update September 8th
In round 2 Owen had a solid win over the wildcard. He will face CJ in the final heat of round 3.

Adam had a win over Wilko in round 2 but couldn't get past Taj in round 3. Mello will have to rely on the call-ups as an alternate for the remainder of the year. It's a bummer to see him relegated but you can bet your house that he'll be back.

I'll be back

Update September 9th
Owen went on a rampage against C.J. Hobgood in his Round 3 heat, tearing through the high-performance lefts and rights at Long Beach. He posted the highest single-wave score of the event, 9.80 out of 10, when he unveiled a ferocious, inverted backside air-reverse to solidify the victory and went on to take out his Round 4 heat in commanding fashion to advance into the Quarterfinals.

“I just went out there and knew it would be a hard heat with C.J. needing a result and me wanting a result. I was excited to get out there to have a good heat. I put together a good one and C.J. just didn’t find his rhythm. I really enjoyed it and had a really good time.”

Owen surfs in Quarter Final 4 vs Julian Wilson

Update September 10th
Owen dug deep to keep out Julian Wilson is his Quarter by half a point. In the Semi Alejo couldn't match Owen's committed professional approach and Owen set up a replay of the Teahupoo final vs Slater. In the final Owen Slob aired his way into history. $300K for the win and now being hailed as the best goofy on the planet. Congratulations Owen.

“I’m just lapping it up right now. I’ve always wanted to be in Final with Kelly and last week at Teahupo’o was great. I think Kelly is ready for payback already. Thank you Long Beach, how good is this? Look at these waves! Thanks to Quiksilver, we’ve been looked after all week and they made it really easy for us and thanks for the $300,000. Thanks to my coach Dean Davies, it’s been up and down and we’ve worked towards a win and it means a lot. Thanks to my friends and family at home. I’ve been getting messages from them and my Dad, I wish he was here, but another day. Thanks heaps, I really appreciate the support.”
