So how blessed was the Quiksilver Pro with waves?
The organizers did do their home work and chose the most probable time of year for a solid swell to occur. But, to score as they did with all of the elements coming together requires a bit of fortune anywhere on the East Coast, and the stars seemed to align big time. It was about as probable as Kelly Slater's last minute huge air reverse to beat Taj Burrow in the semi finals. Completely possible, dramatic, and amazing to watch - the Quiksilver Pro New York stuck it big time!
