::Ke11y Slater

There's not much happening at Manly beach this morning.  It's ugly onshore and a struggle to get out of bed let alone leave the house for a paddle.  A good day to be at the desk getting into some typing with a cup of warm coffee.  The grommets were out taking the tops off some wind-chop down at Queenscliff under the guidance of competitive surfing guru Steve Harrison but that was about the only action on the beach.  Speaking of Harro - the Surf Aid Tag Team Corporate Cup will be held from 9am tomorrow down at Queensie.  Come check out the action when the pro's team up with the big end of town in the battle of the suits. Kelly Slater has done it again.  Sneaking past Dan Ross in his Round 3 heat at The Rip Curl Pro Search San Fran means Kelly's won Number 11.   Congratulations King Kelly! Unprecedented!
