We’re seeing continued strong growth in emerging and developing markets while our category expansion initiatives are delivering good initial returns, consistent with our longer-term plans.”
McKnight continued, “And after working closely with city officials over the past few days, we’ve determined that the Quiksilver Pro New York surf contest should and will move forward in an appropriate manner given the impact of Hurricane Irene on the city and residents of Long Beach. We’re eager to bring the world’s best surfers as well as a great surf event to the New York area and in particular to Long Beach, which has an incredible surfing tradition and spirit.”
