Kelly closes in on 10th title at Supertubos

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 15 October, 2010 : - - Hi from Portugal. The contest is done with the World Number 1 and 2 battling it out in the Rip Curl Pro Portugal Final at Supertubos. Kelly Slater is getting closer to claiming his 10th World Title. The numbers have been crunched, the stars and planets are aligning and it could very well go down in Puerto Rico next month.


There was lots of explosive action today in front of thousands of fans. Photos are uploaded and will be topped up over the next day. The full event report and videos are on Surfersvillage. Right now it's time to enjoy the Portuguese fish and vinho tinto.
