Mick Fanning Wins 2013 ASP World Title
Kelly Slater had a magical run to the finals in this contest. He did exactly what he set out to do. Unfortunately for him, Mick was able to pull a rabbit out of the hat in two consecutive heats, snagging a great wave in the dying seconds of each to get the scores he needed to advance past the Quarter Finals and win the world title. Fortunately, the loss of the title frustrated Slater enough for him to commit to another year on the tour. Good news for surf fans everywhere.
