This book is really great. It includes so much detail about Kelly Slaters life and what he is all about doing. The book tells about the bulk of his comptitive career and all of the friends he has made while accomplishing his dreams as a pro surfer. One of my favorite things about this book is that is had small interviews from friends sharing what they think of Kelly and how they were friends. I could not stop reading this book and I thought it was amazing. I would definitely recommend this book ...more

I love Kelly Slater. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been obsessed with his surfing technique and how he’s always positive about everything. I’ve owned this book for a few years but I never got around to read it until now. And boy, did I learn a few things about Slater and his life. I just recently went to Trestles to watch him surf in the Hurley Pro, and although I didn’t get to meet him I did get to give him a high five.

The pictures and the descriptions in this book are phenomenal. Slater
