INCREDIBLE AERIAL MANEUVER
Kelly Slater stunned fans while battling for a quarter final spot in round five in the Hurley Pro competition in California.
While surfing with a determination to beat Mick Fanning, Slater performed an incredible aerial maneuver which was awesome and mind blowing. He propelled himself into the air and spun 360 degrees but then disaster appeared to strike as he became detached from his board in the middle of the rotation. He disappears from view in the whitewash and the battle appears to be over…… but wait…. the whitewash disappears and he re-appears on his board and goes on to finish the wave.
This performance shows why Kelly Slater is the 11 time world champion. Not all surfers are as lucky, and some end up with broken bones from the big waves.
