New York’s Urban Aloha

Post Subject

In just over two weeks the world’s greatest city will become…surf city? Not exactly, but Long Beach about 30 miles east of Manhattan proper is going to try its best to pretend it is worthy of such a title and a $1 million prize ASP tour stop for the first ever Quiksilver Pro NY. Will there be waves good enough to run a contest? Possibly. But as author Thad Ziolkowski will tell you in this New York Times Op-Ed piece “Quiksilver is coming to town less for great surf than for greater market share.” Oh, and also some really kicking parties lest we forget.

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
