GoPro athlete and living legend Kelly Slater has done it yet again, winning the 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro for the second year in a row.
In pumping six- to eight-foot waves, Slater took charge on the final day of competition, posting a perfect 20-point score against Sebastian Zeitz in the quarterfinals, and following it up with a win over John John Florence in the Semis.
The 41-year-old Slater met Mick Fanning in the Finals, where he posted a near-flawless score of 19.80, giving him the win and punctuation on a historical day.
Slater’s 20-point score in the Quarterfinals is only the fourth on record in the ASP, and only the second of the veteran’s career. With this win, Slater now finds himself at the top of the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT) standings.
