Kelly Slater’s sheer domination of competitive surfing is something that has not only gone unmatched in the sport, but across all sports in the history of mankind. Touted by many as one of the greatest athletes of all time, the nine-time ASP World Champion sank his teeth into competitive surfing against legends such as Tom Carroll, Martin Potter and Derek Ho and the surfing icon has only improved with age.
The Floridian prodigy began his ASP World Title legacy when he claimed his first in 1992 and followed up by conquering the majority of the ’90s, placing six ASP world title trophies on his mantle throughout the decade. Slater returned back to competition after a brief sabbatical from 1999-2001, tackling the new millennium’s arsenal of talent including Andy Irons, Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson and proved he hasn’t lost his touch, claiming three additional titles since his return. After an up-and-down year in2009, Slater has remained cautious in revealing his plans for a full-time attack on the ASP World Tour for 2010, so the question is (was), will the legend go for an unprecedented 10th ASP World Title this year? He obviously answered with yes, and of course, claiming the historic 10th crown at the Rip Curl Pro Search in Puerto Rico.
