Can Kelly Slater bounce back from his disappointing finish at the Quik Pro? Fifth place may be fine for most surfers, but Slater isn't most surfers. When he paddles out, he expects to win, and that didn't happen in the quarters against Adriano de Souza. Historically, he has struggled at Margaret River, making the Drug Aware Pro a proper test of his mettle.
