The busy surfing agenda of Kelly Slater

Kelly Slater: the exit is that way...

Kelly Slater has a busy surfing agenda. Before hitting the waves of the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, the ten-time world champion has been training his skills in several different breaks.

In Australia, Slater decided to take the crazy train of "Ours", an almost impossible slab very much appreciated by the Bra Boys. The wave is fast, powerful, heavy and irregular. If you're not experienced, avoid a long stay in the nearest hospital.

Taj Burrow and Mark Mathews shared the "Ours" waves with Kelly Slater and nobody got hurt.

Fiji is near. So, the fully booked agenda ordered a few meals in "Restaurants" and Cloudbreak. Slater even tests a strange 3D equipment around his chest in the six-foot Fiji waves.

With just one week remaining before the recommencement of the 2011 ASP World Title season, the world’s best surfers are gearing up for a gladiatorial clash in the iconic Victorian amphitheater of Bells Beach for the 2011 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.

"I have a love/hate thing with Bells and I’ve said that for years," Slater said. "I’ve had great experiences there, I’ve won four Bells. In the past 19 years of going there, sometimes it’s treated me well and sometimes it’s been the most frustrating stop on tour for me. I think it’s about going there with the right mental approach."

With no pressures, just coolness, Kelly Slater enjoys the Dream Tour stage by stage.
