just heard the same thing...I know it would not be a decision made for the surfers, but they must be stoked to not have to come grovel after getting shacked out of their skulls at Teahupoo. That wave just made 98% of the waves on the planet look boring.
No its been confirmed that is all be cancled Unsound who is working with quicksilver to put on the event has gained info that the contest and festival has been axed due to Irene's damage to Longbeach over the weekend that the city just dont have the resources to have everything ready for the contest. Many Pro's have canceled and are not attending the contest aswell . Shea Lopez via twitter confirmed the contest is off.
so if the music and festivals are canceled, theres just going to be surfing then? which cant be that bad considering this may be the first and last time that the ASP comes to the east coast...but since this would be my 1st, what is the festival part like?? i know that the music is self explanatory, but i dont get what the festival part means...thanks!
