There's something about those eyes. Black as night and emotionless as a tiger shark's. They're the only eyes Kelly Slater hasn't yet stared into and seen a solveable problem. Gabriel opened his NorCal heats with ruthless efficiency, like in France. He toyed with Knox, allowing himself the luxury of falling repeatedly as he experimented with the limits of his repertoire. He makes Owen seem old at 21. Dane looks ancient at 26 and Slater seems like some bizarre mummy. Against Parko in the final, he had the trophy under lock and key in the opening five minutes. Minus an aerial attack, those two backhand waves showed flawless technique based onMachado dynamics and body type. In boxing parlance: packing dynamite in both hands, with an oddly prescient sense of how to humiliate opponents based on flawless wave selection in the opening exchanges. His surfing is more editorial than inventive. It lacks the shock and awe of Dane's Dionysian hacks and airs. Can he translate the act to Pipeline and lefthand reefbreaks on a tour that could look very different in the near future is the only question worth asking right now. Smart money says yes, though momentum for the first of many world titles could be disrupted as he learns the mental art of correct decision making in heavy water.In the interim, Wright, Wilson and Slater will have the advantage in waves of consequence or those requiring purity of line like J-Bay. The leading edge of Brazilian manifest destiny will not be denied for long, though.
