Profile: Surfer, Kelly Slater

The champion of champions.

Ask anyone for the name of a surfer and Kelly Slater is that name. There are reasons for that. He’s been World Surf League champion a record eleven (11!!) times. He was world champion at 20 and again at 39. He quit surfing for a few years, took a break, and came back as strong as ever.

His rivals and friends are amazed by him. He seems to control the ocean.

He says he’s lucky.

Beyond the ocean, Slater appeared in twenty-seven episodes of Baywatch. He dated Pamela Anderson. And he and some surf buddies formed a band. The guy’s been everywhere.

And at 42 he’s old enough for even the most grown-up of us to ogle.
