Kelly Slater, nine-time ASP World Champion, won the 2010 Hurley Pro at Trestles, the 6th stop on the 2010 ASP World Tour, on Saturday. This win pushes Slater, 38, into the ratings’ lead for what could be a record 10th ASP World Title. Lucky for him, he caught two big breaks; one, thanks to a new double-elimination rule, he got a second chance after a Round 4 stumble against Owen Wright; and two, his Round 5 opponent Chris Davidson was a no-show due to illness, giving Slater a free pass to the Quarterfinals. In the Quarterfinals, he took out Wright, went on to beat Mick Fanning in the Semis, and ultimately took the win against Bede Dubridge in the Finals. Now the pressure’s on; with four contests to go, can he win an unprecedented 10th ASP World Title?
Next up: Quiksilver Pro France starting this Saturday, September 25th.
