Surfing legend to visit Fiji

Kelly Slater, 11-time World Champion, will compete in the Corona Fiji Pro. Slater is the most decorated surfer of all time and holds 56 event wins, four from Cloudbreak, Fiji (most recently in 2012). One of the rarest feats in surfing is a ‘perfect heat’, where a competitor scores two perfect 10-point rides in one heat, and of the ten total perfect heats in the history of the championship tour, Slater is responsible for three. This makes him surfer to watch as he winds down his competitive career and focuses on the next chapter of his life.
