Just in case you didn't know, Kelly Slater is on the brink of an historic eighth ASP World Title. Yep, Slater could well be crowded champ right here in Europe this week, depending on how results go at the Dark Eye. The chasing pack have their work cut to stop Kelly being crowned here, here's a summary of the scenario, yo.

World Title Scenario

  • Kelly wins Mundaka – Kelly wins World Title.
  • Kelly gets 2nd in Mundaka – Taj, Andy, Mick must win to keep the title race open.
  • Kelly gets 3rd – Taj must get 5th, and Andy, Mick, Joel must place higher than Kelly.

Kelly will be surfing against Basque wildcard Hodei Collazo when competition recommences.

The Billabong Pro Mundaka can be viewed LIVE on the Internet at www.billabongpro.com and www.aspworldtour.com.

Basically let's hope:

EITHER

a) he wins it here in Europe,

OR

b) it comes down to a nailbiting finish at Pipe...

AND NOT

c) he wins it in Brazil.
