Kelly Slater

Surfing in one of the last heats of the day, Kelly Slater sat and watched Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson and Bede Durbidge go absolutely ape out in the Snapper lineup. Being the competitive bugger that he is, he paddled out with every intention of making a statement. And like most every other time he surfs, he succeeded. Slater promptly dispatched Pat Gudauskas, continuing his bid for a third Quik Pro title. (Jason Kenworthy)
