So the question of the day is simple; all things being equal, would you rather win a world title or ride the biggest wave? Kelly Slater has been eliminated in Portugal early on. While not statistically eliminated from winning his 12th title this year, it would take a miracle to come back now. With a smile on his face, Kelly left the competition and quickly went to Nazare to explore the famous heavy water break with current world’s record holder Garrett McNamara. Few people can seriously contemplate this question, but Kelly is one of them. Could yet another surfing record be in his future?
