This book covers the life and athleticism of Kelly Slater, arguably the most successful surfer in history. As of 2012 Slater held the record for both the youngest surfer to win the world championship and the oldest, an accomplishment that bookends a story of dominance unseen in any sport. Slater has helped bring surfing to the masses by providing an example of a professional who works hard and lives cleanly. He has endeavored to make surfing more accessible and understandable to a broad audience. In addition, Slater has established a charitable foundation that embraces environmental issues and brings surfing to many who would otherwise never have the chance to participate.
