From The Caribbean To New York: Hurricane Igor Photo Gallery

Just over a week ago, Hurricane Igor was a category four hurricane and threatening to do some major damage to low-lying islands in the Caribbean. As it neared category five status, surfers up and down the East Coast really began to take notice as it had become the most powerful storm of the 2010 hurricane season. Seizing the opportunity to score some potentially incredible surf, TransWorld SURF‘s Seth Stafford along with hurricane fiends Alek Parker and Cory Lopez headed straight for it. Suffice to say, the boys scored big in the Caribbean before heading back to the States to score yet again in New Jersey and New York. As of today, Igor is no longer hurricane, but the ogre is still wrecking havoc way up in Canada. Enjoy the show…

Sometime after this gaping backside barrel, Cory Lopez smashed into the reef head first and had to be taken to the hospital where doctors removed chunks of reef from deep inside his ear. Hope you're feeling better pal. Photo: Stafford/SPL
