Eight-time World Champion, Kelly Slater, arrived yesterday for the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. Straight off the plane to a press conferance, Kelly had this to say, “something needs to change in my life.”
Slater, who has been a mystery his whole career, has been even more mysterious of late. He has hinted at retirement on several occasions, but has been committed to surf this event since his last heat at the Pipe Masters. He ended his press conference with, “winning this event could be a nice way to go out.” So stay tuned folks, you could witness the last WCT heat of a surfing legend.
