Kelly Slater’s April Fools Joke

“Big decisions in life don’t come easy and it’s taken a lot of quiet time and personal introspection to come to this conclusion…The #RipCurlPro was the first event I surfed on tour and it’s fitting that this will be my last @wsl. There are too many people to thank and memories to go over but here’s to hoping I can pull a rabbit out of the hat and win one last event this week. My board feels great (thank you @cisurfboards and @travlee) and I’m as psyched as ever to just surf and enjoy. Hope to see everyone down there at #BellsBeach this week.” – Kelly Slater

Don’t be fooled people Kelly wants to go out on top

Kelly Slater Murdered Who?

Told by Photographer Jack English

“I arrived in Oceanside with my daughter and I usually never take my phone with me to the beach as I always leave it inside my truck (I can’t stand people who spend more time on their phone then with their kids). For some weird reason I had a voice inside my head that said take your phone with you – it’s always those times when you wish you had your phone (camera) with you – so I took it.

I am now down by the shoreline on the south side of the pier playing in the sand with my daughter. I look down the beach and I see a man waving signs in the air. I was like what the heck is that guy doing? So this guy is getting closer and closer to me and then all of a sudden he get’s close enough where I can clearly read “Slater” and then a couple feet closer and I clearly read “Kelly Slater”. So I instantly jump up grab my phone and turn it onto camera and began walking cautiously towards this guy. I get closer and I now can clearly read the entire sign ‘KELLY SLATER MURDERED ANDY IRONS MARK FOO’. By now I am tripping out, like what the f_ck is going on – is this some kind of sick joke. I knew instantly I had to get a shot of this guy and I just kindly ask “can I get a shot of you” and he said “sure”. Now the guy is within a few feet of me barking in my ear as spit is flying out of his mouth. “What’s your deal with Kelly Slater sign”. “Ah, that f_ucking guy tried to choke me out right out there.” As I clearly knew this guy was lying and he just was spilling words out of his mouth and I could no way keep up with everything he was saying – he just kept going on and on. He then began talking about the government and I honestly had no clue what he was talking about as by now I was starting to worry about my safety as I didn’t know if this guy wasn’t going to take a swing at me or not. I wasn’t so much scared, but more so just thinking get this guy away from me. So I just kept saying ok to all of his remarks until he just turned and walked away.” – Jack English

Kelly Slater Putting Lipstick On A Pig

“Firewire approached Kelly midway through last year. Kelly happened to be on the market, too, looking for something to pour his formidable intellect (and wealth) into. He bit, he bought.” – Beach Grit

Firewire by Tomo (Daniel Thomson) – We’re sorry, but we can safely say these type of boards will never be considered cool


Seems Kelly is going through a mid life crisis by surfing these boards in his heats (lost out in round 3 on the Goldy)

Ryan Drexler Wants Quiksilver Sold!

“There is no indication of any creative effort in terms of fashion design or advertising and marketing,” Mr. Drexler said in his letter dated March 9. “Given the emerging accounting and legal problems, declining consumer demand and lack of creativity…I cannot see a reason to place faith in the current management’s turnaround plan. In my opinion, the promise of better times being just around the corner is nothing more than wishful thinking.

I again urge you and the Board to unlock the value of the company’s well known brand names, global retail and wholesale presence and supply chain by exploring a sale of the company to maximize shareholder value consistent with the board’s fiduciary obligations.” – Ryan Drexler

Kelly Slater might be the smartest surfer of all time getting out when he did

Kelly Slater Almost Strangled

Reported by The Coureir Mail Kelly Slater almost strangled by a leg rope while surfing Snapper Rocks located on the Gold Coast of Australia

“Most places that are really crowded, and Pipeline is the first place that comes to mind, there is a real pecking order in the line-up. You know who the locals are, you know who the guys who are good are, you know who is going to get the sets when they come and who is going to end up on the best waves and those guys utilise the waves the best way. That is nowhere close to what happens here. You get run over, you run into people, I had a leash wrapped around my neck two days ago.” – Kelly Slater
