October 27 and 28th brought back Cocoa Beach local Kelly Slater to his brother's Sean Slater Invitational Surf Event to benefit The World Cancer Foundation. With seven-time World Champion Kelly Slater committed, this invite-only field of 32 surfers was an event of unbelievable talent. This was the first time in about 15 years that Kelly has surfed a contest in his hometown. Sean Slater has been involved in the surf industry for over twenty years in different capacities. He currently works for Volcom and also produces Slater Surfboards.
