Kelly Slater: no pressure, just show off

The stage is set. Hawaii is getting ready for the famous Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, the most waited jewels of world surfing, now in its 28th edition.

With the guiding light of Andy Irons, the waves will hit the Haleiwa Ali'i Beach Park for the Reef Hawaiian Pro, from November 12th. Then, it's time for another blessed event. The O'Neill World Cup of Surfing will see thousands of spectators gathering in Sunset Beach, between November 24th and December 6th.

Finally, there's the Billabong Pipe Masters, in Banzai Pipeline, for a tube riding heaven, held between December 8th-20th. The rules are pretty simple. The best surfer of the three events gets the privilege to own the heavy title.

The event is worth $900,000 in prize money. Also, you aren't going to miss the "Clash of the Legends" and the "World Miss Reef" final.

Kelly Slater and Stephanie Gilmore, the 2010 ASP World champions, will be surfing with no pressure and promise to send out a huge show to everyone out in the beach and online, throughout the world.
