King Kelly has been crowned the 2008 Boost Mobile Champion at Lowers Trestles and is heading to Hossegor for the Quik Pro France
Rated No.1 in the world and with a demanding lead Kelly Slater will be wanting dominate (again) the thumping waves of La Graviere, the main contest site for the event, and could possibly wrap things up here in true French way.Numero uno.

The king of everything and 8 times world champion loves France and always spends plenty of time in the challenging waves of Seignosse and Hossegor.

Last year after the Quik Pro the waves cooked for about 2 weeks straight and the surf never dropped below 5 feet.

The king and the crop were out in force. From Kelly, Bobby, the Hobgoods,Wardo to Tom Curren the exchange was wave for wave and awesome. These guys can barrel ride.

I can’t wait.
