Kelly Slater, born in Cocoa Beach, Florida, in 1972, is an 11-time surfing world champion who is the youngest and oldest to win the prestigious title. After winning his first world title in 1992 at the ripe old age of 20, he would go on to win 4 additional titles from 1994-97, passing Australian surfer Mark Richards to become the most successful champion in the history of the sport. Slater holds the record for the all-time leader in career event wins and is the first surfer ever to be awarded two perfect 10s under the ASP (now, WSL) two-wave scoring system. If that’s not enough, in 2010 he was honored by the United States House of Representatives for his surfing achievements, is a fundraiser and spokesperson for suicide prevention awareness, sits on the Board of Advisors of ocean conservation organization Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and is an accomplished golfer and guitarist. Slater has managed to juggle all of these variables, and more, within his life while still climbing the rankings of international stardom. He has transcended generations and inspired millions.
While Slater has a plethora of young talent nipping at his feet, he is not slowing down any time soon. He is still fighting for that 12th world title while moving the sport of surfing forward in an evolutionary way. With the dimensions of the boards he rides, to his healthy lifestyle, to the various roles he plays within the surfing community, Slater is always a force to be reckoned with, in and out of the water.
