Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay 2010

The Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay 2010 kicks of in less than a week- Joel Parkisnon is out with a badly sliced foot after a wipeout at his home break of Snapper Rocks and Kelly Slater is still on for world title number 10! Heres the ASP news on the event:

Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay, Stop No. 4 of 10 on the 2010 ASP World Tour, the greatest assemblage of surfing talent in history journeys to South Africa for the next thrilling instalment of the 2010 ASP World Title race and the dramatic mid-year field reduction from the ASP Top 45 to 32.

Kelly Slater (USA), 38, former nine-time ASP World Champion and current ASP World No. 1, has recovered from a slow start (Equal 9th) at the season opener on the Gold Coast with a victory at Bells Beach and a Runner-Up in Brazil to land him in his current No. 1 spot. A threat in any conditions, but especially considering the upcoming events, Slater is poised to make a run at an unprecedented 10th ASP World Title in 2010.

“I feel less pressure this year and that's a good thing,” Slater said. “I didn't have what I would call a very good year for myself last year, and this one started out slowly but sped up as I found focus through the injury at Bells. From here on out, I stay aware of what I need to.”

A four-time past champion at the Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay (1996, 2003, 2005, 2008), the long righthanders suit the iconic natural-footer’s approach perfectly, and the Floridian is eager to return to the singlet and to elite competition after the lengthy break.
