Slater 10 Gilmore 4
It has been a very busy November and only one week down so far. There has been a tragic loss, a groundbreaking win and an overlooked celebration. Kelly Slater won his 10th world title...10. Oh and did I mention he is 38. He is 11 years older than I am, and I have traveled to a fraction of the world he has won contests in. I need to get on that. However, Kelly's title was won during a dark time in surf history.
With Kelly's win and AI's death there is alot happening in the surf world. The 10 titles, which would be less if Andy hadn't been there to challenge him and keep him on his toes. Once a great rivalry it had turned to a relationship built on respect and united within the arms of Mother Ocean.
Then there is Steph Gilmore who just won number 4! Enough said with the picture above.
So hey Steph if you are ever up here in New England I will grab your next round. Oh Kelly that goes for you too. And to the Irons family a cold one is always waiting.
