In the semi, Slater pulled out all the stops on the smallish waves and perhaps went into the final too relaxed, as during the 35-minute final decider he was no match for Martinez’s energy.

Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer, even though it's essentially a sea-salted version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, does a better job of capturing that lifestyle than any surfing game before it, and is thus given the prestigious title of "BEST SURFING GAME EVER."

Six-time world champ Slater -- who's gone the admirable route of shaving his head instead of trying to disguise his male pattern baldness -- is the shining star, but you can also select old-schoolers Tom Carroll and Tom Curren, best-chick-surfer-ever Lisa Andersen, and a cross-section of twenty-something punks.
