Yesterday afternoon, within minutes of Kelly Slater clinching his 11th world surfing title in his 2nd heat at Ocean Beach San Francisco the boys had strung up a banner with a big 11 behind Kelly's statue at the entrance to downtown Cocoa Beach. The crowd watching on the big screen in the back room at Surfinista Cafe erupted when Kelly caught his winning wave in the last minutes of his heat. Computers all over town were tuned in to watch this unprecedented and likely never to be repeated moment. Needless to say, Cocoa Beach is very proud of our champion. Way to go, Kelly.
