OCEAN BEACH, San Francisco/California (Tuesday, November 1, 2011) Jordy Smith (ZAF). – Clean three-to-five foot (1 – 1.5 metre) waves graced the banks at Ocean Beach today as the world’s best kicked off the Rip Curl Pro Search San Francisco.. Event No. 10 of 11 on the 2011 ASP World Title Series, the Rip Curl Pro Search San Francisco plays a pivotal role in both the requalification campaigns of the world’s best surfers and the hunt for the 2011 ASP World Title.. .Matt Wilkinson (AUS), 23, reveled in today’s wedgy beachbreak conditions, threading the needle on clean barrels on his forehand and unloading tail-drifting backhand turns to accumulate the day’s highest heat-total of 16.53 (out of 20) to win his Round 1 heat.. .Kelly Slater (USA), 39, defending Rip Curl Pro Search champion, looked sharp while opening his campaign in San Francisco, navigating through several barrels and executing committed turns to earn a 16.03 heat total and a Round 1 heat victory.. Slater, reigning 10-time ASP World Champion and current frontrunner on the 2011 ASP World Title Race, needs to take a 9th place finish at the Rip Curl Pro Search to secure his unprecedented 11th crown, but still remained conservative in regards to possibilities despite his commanding lead over the field. .
