Kelly Slater Is So Rad

A million years ago (1991) I went to Tavarua with a bunch of Quiksilver people; Kelly was one of them.
At the time Richard Wolcott (Volcom founder and CEO) was the QS team manager (HA!) and he was filming a movie which would eventually become "Kelly Slater in Black and White".
At the time it was no big deal.....a bunch of people on a surf trip, but you can see with some time and perspective it was really a piece of surfing history.

It is so great to see Kelly go on and become the best surfer in the world.....even back then you knew something was going on, he NEVER fell off his board, it was insane.
Congrats to Kelly, he deserves everything he has.
