Kelly Slater is literally the most kickass surfer in the history of competitive wave surfing. He is known for his competiveness and agressive style which has won him a record 11 World Championships on the ASP World Tour.
But apart from being ultra competitive he is above all a lover of the ocean and the surf sport. So when he comes up with some funky kickass mission never seen before, you can see a twinkle in his eye, and you can bet he is going to pull it off.
