Slater Almost Wins Again, World Title Races Continues (Kind Of…)

While the eventual crowning of Kelly Slater as this year’s ASP World Champion is inevitable, Australia’s Adrian “Ace” Buchan wasn’t about to just sit by and let it happen in France. Buchan topped Slater in the final heat in Hossegor today and won the 2008 Quiksilver Pro France. Buchan finished the final with a score of 15.74 and held off any Slater-esque comebacks to narrowly top Slater’s total of 15.16.

While everyone looked to the Aussies to keep Slater’s 9th on hold, most of us didn’t expect it to be Buchan. This very impressive win vaults him in to the Top 10 of the ASP World Tour rankings and ensures the overall world title race will continue at the upcoming Billabong Pro Mundaka.

Congratulations Adrian “Ace” Buchan, winner of the 2008 Quiksilver Pro France! Stay tuned to 5ones for more info on all of the day’s action at the Quik Pro.
