After four consecutive days of world class surfing that drew a 100,000 fans to the beach, and a day that will go down in history, it is safe to say the the Quiksilver Pro New York is here to stay.
Owen Wright, the 21 year-old rookie from Australia took out the 10 time world champion Kelly Slater and wrote one of the biggest underdog tales of the sports history. Wright takes home $300,000 for the event and moves to No. 2 in the world.
Big congrats to Owen Wright!
