Is Dad Kelly Slater the Best Surfer in the World? He Sure Can Tackle Trestles!


Kelly Slater

Is dad Kelly Slater the best surfer in the world? He might just be and at 38, he shows no signs of slowing down. His career has been and continues to be impressive…very impressive.  He’s been a surfing pro for over twenty years and has the awards, accolades and history with Hollywood hotties to prove it!  He made news this week at the Hurley Pro at Trestles by winning the title while surfing against of a slew of much younger, and hungrier surfers. But that’s not what made this win so phenomenal….

He won the same competition almost exactly twenty years ago, right when he was starting his professional surfing career! He is now the leader in the ASP World Title Race rankings, he’s going for his 10th ASP World Title, an unheard of feat.

When he’s not riding the waves, he tries to spend time with his 14-year-old daughter Taylor, who was born to his ex-girlfriend. He has dabbled in acting, he had a role on Baywatch and starred in a Garbage video. And of course, he keeps busy with the ladies. He’s reportedly been romantically linked to Pamela Anderson, Gisele Bundchen and there are rumors of him hooking up with Cameron Diaz.

But what he’s really known for is his riding of the waves. Congrats to this surferboy, showing the kids how it is done!
