If we're purely going on someone's surfing ability at this period of time then Dane has got to come top. Even Kelly has said that Dane is the best surfer in the world at the moment.

Dunno Eggz, more to the point, can Dane do what Kelly can? Slater admits freely (and humbly) that Dane, Jordy, Wright + Co are the future, but they still can't beat him consistently for style and raw power, not yet anyway! Hats off to him, if he signs off now he leaves an apparently indomitable legacy. Congrats.

Yeah , you're right , and you've got to admire how he's trying to embrace the new style too , encouraging all the young guys like Dane (though making damn sure he beats them when it matters!). Also he was throwing some pretty outrageous turns in the final , but I don't reckon even he could score a near 10 for a single turn wave (a la Reynolds)

Fair point I do agree with you that Dane's(and Jordy's) turns have surpassed Mr Slater. My point was lets say Kelly never existed, Do you think the current level of surfing would be where it is?

sure , no doubt he is best ever , most consistent in any conditions , but you can see he sometimes tries to throw the same mental turns that Reynolds does , and doesnt quite manage it.

I believe Dane could not do what he does today if it wasn't for Kellys progression of the sport.
