SLATER PULLS OUT FROM VANS US OPEN

July 29, 2014

Kelly Slater has withdrawn from the Vans US OPEN after aggravating a prior shoulder injury.

The 11-time ASP World Champion was scheduled to compete in the Men’s Qualification Series (QS) contest in Huntington Beach, CA.

The annual, Prime-rated Men’s contest at Huntingdom Beach typically attracts some of the world’s best surfers.

Slater, who is currently ranked World No. 6 on the elite ASP World Champion Tour (WCT), last competed at the J-Bay Open in South Africa, but was eliminated in Round 3, in a heat against Matt Wilkinson (AUS).
