7th Annual Oakley Unsound Pro


The 7th Annual Oakley Unsound Pro in Long Beach N.Y. went off this September. The event was hit with surf straight on by hurricane Ophelia. The 4 day event peaked on Saturday with a group of top WQS warriors.

Finalists Asher Nolan, Kyle Garson, Dusty Payne, and Oakley’s own Aaron Cormican battled it out in flawless 4ft (6-8ft faces) beach break peaks. This year’s event featured many creative rounds such as the Unsound Air Show, tow at event, and a Fantasy Team Challenge, which pushed the level of surfing to the next level, and gave an opportunity to make some cash while doing it.
