Kelly Slater’s Perfect 10 – Rip Curl Pro Bells

April 12th, 2012 by John Zanussi

I wonder who holds the record for most 10 point rides in ASP history. It’s probably Kelly, right? This is the rediculous air Kelly boosted at the Rip Curl Pro Bells in which he was awarded a 10 for. The guy is 40 years old and he’s still doing shit like this. He’s a freak. More »

Sound Off: ASP Pay-Per-View Webcasts

March 15th, 2012 by John Zanussi
