KELLY Slater, reigning 11-time world champion wins the Volcom Fiji Pro, beating 18-year-old Gabriel Medina in dominant style at Cloudbreak.
Slater who'd never beaten the young Brazilian in a man-on-man heat grabbed the young cur by the scruff of his neck and delivered a 8.33 and 9.83 double-tap in the opening half of the bout to put Medina on the ropes.
"It's about time I got him," Slater said. "He had my number in the back half of last year and he'll probably go on to beat everyone for the next 20 years. He can do it all and I think he proved that to a lot of people this week at Restaurants and out here at Cloudbreak."
"I think everyone who competes on tour is here to win," Slater said. "If you're winning events, then you're winning world titles. At this point in my career, I'm probably more focused on surfing well though. The waves just pumped today. Some guys win, some guys lose, but everyone is happy if the waves are good."
