Kelly Slater (USA) didn't bring home a 12th ASP World Championship trophy from the Billabong Pipe Masters. But he's planning to return to Hawaii's North Shore in the new year for some relaxation and reflection: "After the Tour's over I just try to have some time to myself, some quiet time. Try to give it a few weeks before I reflect too much on it. I usually reflect a little bit that day [the last of a season], and then not until like January or February. Then try to think about how the year went and what else I want to do next time."
