Extreme Legends - Kelly Slater

  Kelly Slater steps into the cool water that coats the sandy beach and wades deep into the salty tide. He lies down on his board and gently paddles across the surface of the water, the bright sun gleaming overhead. In rhythm with the natural strength of the ocean swells, he heads to catch a wave that’s about to break. For a pro surfer like Slater, this harmonious interaction with the ocean is not just a sport or recreational pursuit—it’s another day at the office. Dubbed the "greatest surfer of all time,” Robert Kelly Slater began honing his wave-riding skills at age 5 in his native Florida. "I loved going to the beach and the ocean was just a progression from getting off the land,” he simply says.
Now at 36, this remarkable eight-time ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) World Tour champion is currently ranked number one in the world. In 1992, he became the youngest world champion at age 20 and has continued to dominate the surfing world. Sponsored by Quiksilver since 1990, he effortlessly shatters records with impeccable ability and style; including being the oldest world champion at age 34, the only surfer to score a "Perfect 20” heat total in ASP history (Billabong Tahiti Pro in 2005), and the most elite tour wins in pro surfing history (34 total).
This gifted athlete also boasts his range of talents out of the water with an extensive résumé of television and film roles, video-game appearances, an autobiography titled "Pipe Dreams: A Surfer’s Journey,” and charitable contributions. He works frequently with ocean preservation groups. He plays guitar and formerly had a band known, appropriately, as The Surfers. And, he’s had a busy personal life dating a string of beautiful actresses and supermodels, from Pamela Anderson to Gisele Bundchen.
Slater is a regular visitor to the Monterey Bay area, where he surfs and also plays one of his other favorite sports: golf. He plays rounds at Tehama and has been a competitor in the annual Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament. He’s said in the past that he plays golf every day when the waves are bad, and several times a week when the surf is good. Slater took a break from chasing the waves in Fiji—where he scored his third win on the 2008 ASP World Tour—to chat with Carmel Magazine about everything from surfing in Santa Cruz to fantasizing about being a pro golfer.
