    Kelly Slater (USA), 38, former nine-time ASP World Champion and current ASP World No. 1, survived a wave-starved Round 2 bout today against wildcard Maxime Huscenot (FRA), 18, in the opening heat of the day. “Maxime (Huscenot) surf really well,” Slater said. “The waves being so flat today, I think it was more of an equalizer. Yesterday there was such a luck factor and literally anyone could have got a wave that would ultimately get you the score. I thought one of us would get one of those lefts down the beach but we didn’t. It was tough going out there.”
