Kelly Slater won his 11th ASP World Title this morning. After beating Dan Ross in round three of the Rip Curl Search Pro, San Francisco, Kelly was chaired up the beach and crowned king for the 11th time in his life. That wasn’t all that happened today, though. There was also some other surfing.

“I was loving it out there,” said Owen Wright after his heat. “As soon as I got out there, I got told there would be a break after Kelly’s heat so I didn’t even know it had started. After that they started calling out my scores and I was thinking ‘what have I done.’ It’s just really fun out there actually. Kelly winning the title didn’t really change my attitude. Kelly’s been amazing and congrats to him. It’s something I want to gain from him and compete against him and go for it again.”

Owen wasn’t the only goofy-footer who blitzed, either. “Kai was sitting too far out and I was on the inside watching to see if he was going to get in to it,” Miguel Pupo said after scooping his first win of the day. “I saw the double-up and just raced through it and came out. It’s great to start a heat like that and I feel like I’m starting to find my feet on tour. I’m feeling great and you always feel good after a win. I’m happy to be here, I’m feeling comfortable and hopefully I can keep finding some waves like I did in the last heat.”

Kell beat Dan Ross and it was all his. Simple as that.
