The ASP issued a press release today announcing that it has accepted the resignation of Brodie Carr as CEO, effective December 31. Carr offered his resignation after the premature crowning of Kelly Slater as champ earlier this month.
“It is my duty to accept responsibility for the recent calculation error that resulted in the premature crowning of Kelly Slater’s 11th ASP World Title,” Brodie Carr says. “The determination of the ASP World Title is the most important moment in professional surfing. Ultimately, the responsibility for every activity within ASP lies with me. Therefore, I have elected to resign my position as CEO.”
The ASP thanked Carr for his six year contribution to the tour.
