BURLEIGH HEADS, Coolangatta/Australia (Thursday, February 24, 2011) – 10-Time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater (USA), 39, has recently landed on the Gold Coast of Australia, dialing in his equipment and adjusting to the time change for the upcoming 2011 ASP World Tour season opener, the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover. Local surf publication Australia’s Surfing Life checked in on Slater’s whereabouts and the mag has covered everything from the Floridian signing autographs on the beach for star-struck groms to Slater’s recent battle wound, a ding in his dome earned during a free-surf. This… is their story…
Kelly Slater has rolled in to the Gold Coast in time for the season opening Quiksilver Pro at Snapper. After a few days of surfing attracting headlines for the wrong reasons, it’s awesome to see the Greatest Of All Time kicking it with the kids on the beach, signing plenty of autographs, and lighting up an otherwise dreary day at Duranbah.
