Unsound Surf Pro 2017

Surfers, get your boards waxed and ready. The height of hurricane season in the North Atlantic Ocean has arrived to the East Coast and Long Beach, NY, is set for the Unsound Surf Pro competition running from September 13 to September 17, 2017.

 

What’s there not to like when one of the best surf shops in Long Island, Unsound Surf, decides to pair with sponsors like RVCA, SPY Sunglasses and Pura Vida Braclets? The result is an annual surfing competition that has been attracting professional surfers to Long Beach, NY, since 1999. 

 

As some of you may know, surfing will make its debut as an Olympic sport in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. This groundbreaking decision has turned competitions like Unsound Pro Surf into opportunities for athletes seeking to qualify for the Olympic surfing team. Spectators can be sure to find an electric atmosphere due to the high level of competition.  

 

This event is getting bigger every year, especially because organizers and sponsors alike cater to a wider audience than just surfers. Unsound Pro Surf has become an outlet for skateboarders, urban artists and musicians who now have a well-deserved space to share their talent. What’s more, hardcore surf fans will have their opportunity to meet and greet athletes at the Unsound Surf shop. 

 

Luckily for our guests, the Allegria Hotel is located just a couple of blocks from the Lincoln Blvd beach, where the competition will take place. After going down to the Atlantica Restaurant for breakfast, take a short stroll down the boardwalk and pick your perfect spot to watch elite surfers rip through the waves. Anyone wishing to just stop by for the day, remember that New York City is less than an hour away!
