Semi Pro: Slater's not a pro, yet

Channel Islands Surfboards has unveiled the lucky gear used by Kelly Slater at the Hurley Pro Trestles.

Slater was delivering top scores and surfing performances with a 5'9" x 18 1/4" x 2 1/4" Semi Pro.

He even used that funny "Semi Pro" headband during the heats.

Maybe the relaxed attitude of not being a Pro mixed with the professional drive gave him the win over Bede Durbidge.
