Kelly Slater (USA)

11xASP World Champion Kelly Slater of the United States of America (pictured) has finished runner-up at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, clinching the ASP World No. 1 position after just two events on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour. Slater fought back from an early combination situation against Fanning in Friday’s final, completing an incredible full-rotation aerial for a Perfect 10. The legendary natural-footer backed it up moments later with an 8.07 to take the lead, but would only hold it briefly after an assault from Fanning left in second place finishing on 18.07 (out of 20.00) to Fanning’s 18.80.
