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.

Surfline.com, a leading forecaster of wave and surf conditions, conducted a 15-year wave study for western Long Island, New York, summarizing that September 4-15 is one of the most consistent time periods for sizable surf in the region. In addition, local feedback supports these findings, with September typically averaging 3+ hurricane swells, with at least one 3-4 day swell.
The competition dates will include the Quiksilver Pro Trials in Long Beach on September 3, 2011 the Quiksilver Pro New York WT competition on September 4-15, 2011. In addition, Quiksilver will bring world-class athletes to New York City during the month of September for a series of demos, films, parties, music concerts and art exhibits that represent the best of surf, skate and snowboarding cultures.
