Kelly Slater has taken the win over Mick Fanning at the Rip Curl Pro at Bells. This was Slater’s fourth win at the historical event. Marked by an array of less-than-stellar conditions at Bells, the last day of competition was held at a back up location at Johanna Beach. To boot, it’s been reported that the nine-time champ claimed the win over Fanning with a hairline fracture in his foot, the result of an injury sustained while freesurfing a few day’s prior.
