El Segundo, Calif. (June 19th, 2008) – The Sickest Event on the Planetreturned, and lived up to its reputation as competitors were treated to 6-8foot surf at both Restaurants and Cloudbreak. Competitors and contestorganizers alike felt that the 2008 Globe Pro Fiji was the best event forwaves on the Men’s ASP World Tour in nearly two years.
After missing the event in 2006, Kelly Slater picked up right where he leftoff in 2005, in vicious form and with another win–his third of the year for2008. Despite strong performances by Globe team riders CJ Hobgood and TajBurrow, finishing 2nd and 3rd, respectively, Slater’s form was true to hiseight world titles, unbelievable.
Congratulations to Kelly Slater on an outstanding performance.
