Down But Not Out

Kelly Slater reflects on his competitive year thus far and the headspace he's in

It’s been a shocker of a year for Kelly Slater. We could speculate all day about what it’s been, his new brand, his age, his mental space, yada yada yada, but it’s much easier to hear it from the 11-time World Champ himself. If there’s one thing you can always count on with Kelly, it’s that even when he’s down, he’s never completely out, and that’s why he’s the greatest surfer this world has ever seen. Now get your dose of philosophy and press play above.
