Inside Mac Games has posted a preview of Aspyr's upcoming surfing game, Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer based on a recent beta of the game. Originally created by Treyarch and soon to come to the Mac courtesy of Aspyr Media, KSPS looks to add surfing to the list of extreme sports titles that have been so popular of late.

Here's a clip from the preview:

From its incredibly long opening movie to the inventive game selection interface modeled on top of a boat cabin, KSPS lets players know from the get-go that they've entered the unique world of surfing. Several game modes are offered, including Career Mode, Freesurf, and Multiplayer. Freesurf allows players to choose from whatever surf breaks have been unlocked and go for either high score challenges, icon challenges, or unlimited surfing. The multiplayer game includes modes such as Head-to-Head, Time Attack, and Push.

The Career Mode is the meat of the game, where players start by picking their favorite surfer from among a variety of famous names. Besides the ever-present Kelly Slater, surfers such as Tom Curren, Kalan Robb, and Lisa Andersen are also available, each with their own set of stats. These stats include speed, air, spin, and balance, all of which can be enhanced when making a surfboard selection. Players can also choose from a variety of suits if they so wish.

For more on this unique title, be sure to check out our in-depth preview.
