The Reason Kelly Slater Stayed At J-Bay

Post-shark perfection with a cameo by Sean Holmes

As you may have heard, Kelly Slater decided to extend his stay in South Africa a few days longer than the rest of the bunch once the J-Bay Open was called to a close. His reasoning? Long, peeling lines and howling offshore winds. From all accounts, he made the right call as there hasn’t been another shark encounter reported since White Lightning laid the smack down. (Side note: Saffa Sean Holmes knows the point like the back of his hand.)
