Because post-event write-ups are generally just as boring to read as they are to write, I figured a few context-free quotes from 2010 Hurley Pro Champion and current ASP World Ratings leader, Kelly Slater, might do the trick. Enjoy.
“I just told Pat [O’Connell] that I’d let 105,000 people punch me in the face to surf these waves by myself…and you paid me money.”
“Dane is not Mick Fanning. He doesn’t come to the beach with vitamins and stuff – he doesn’t know what to eat before his heat. He gets tired really easily.”
“Looking back at my career, I never would have fathomed a ninth title, let alone a 10th. I don’t know what to say. It’s still a long road ahead. We still have four events, and I’m just trying to soak in this win and not even think about everything right now.”
