Ten-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater. Surfing legend Kelly Slater has another award he can put on his mantel.

Slater, who made sporting history Nov. 6 when he claimed an unprecedented 10th Assn. of Surfing Professionals World Tour title, has been awarded a Guinness World Record for "The most career wins of the male Assn. of Surfing Professionals world title."

Quiksilver posted an image of Slater's Guinness certificate on its surf blog.

This is the 38-year-old's second Guiness World Record -- he also received one in 2005 for being the first person in surfing to score two perfect-10 rides, under the ASP two-wave scoring system, during the final of the Billabong Tahiti Pro.
