Kelly Slater Furniture By PBTeen

“I’m really excited to be working with PBteen on this project. While they’re not part of the endemic surf market, I’m honored that PBteen has seen me as someone who can help a broader audience understand the need to use recycled, repurposed and organic materials. Global conservation is a focal point of the capsule collection and it falls right in line with the change and direction I’m working towards, on a professional and personal basis. In collaborating with PBteen, we are creating a subtle and natural feel with this collection — something that has an authentic appeal for teens and their parents alike.” – Kelly Slater

Kelly Slater May Be Buying Firewire Surfboards

Rumors are flying that Kelly Slater will be leaving Channel Island Surfboards and in doing so has or will be buying (part of) the Firewire surfboard company based out of north county San Diego (Cardiff by the Sea).

“I’ll address the surfboard stuff soon. It’s nothing definite until it’s finished and it’s a work in progress. But surfboards are a tricky business. There’s a certain irony to all of our environmental talk and chemical walk. That’s not to point fingers at anyone but myself. I just think it’s time to do something about my residue that’s built up. The industry focus has been on perfecting the shapes and performance of what we are all used to for a long while now. I’m fond of tinkering and experimenting and evolving. Lessening materials impact is an obligation for me. So… my partners and I are working on something.” – Kelly Slater / Stab Magazine

Volcom Ad With Kelly Slater

Volcom has used Kelly Slater in their new ad in the January issue of Blisss magazine promoting the 2015 Volcom Pipe Pro which goes from January 29 – February 8.

You may be asking how does Volcom have permission to use Kelly Slater in their ad when he does not ride for them? When a surfer enters a surf event (CT or QS) that surfer must sign a release before he is handed a jersey, in the release it states that the title sponsor has permission to use the surfer in any type of future promotion which has to do with that event.
