Going for 10?

The annual "Will he or won't he?" conversation regarding Kelly Slater's dedication to chasing a tenth world title has become as reliable as the start of the tour itself and nearly as entertaining. But so long as his meal ticket is the title sponsor of the tour's first event, it's unlikely Slater won't at least start the process of chasing points. "I never found myself in the right mind frame to deal with the pressure of a tenth title ... for more than a few heats last year," says Slater. "I am comfortable with nine (ASP World Titles), but yeah, ten has a certain allure to it." (Joli)
