There is a reason the sporting world always references the same elite athletes when searching for adjectives to describe greatness – MJ, Lance, Gretzky, Tiger … Slater. When the time comes to dig inside themselves and shed the pressure of sport, these are the ones that find the way to continually perform beyond expectations. They are judged against themselves, and they reset the scale each and every time leaving us with mouth open and a desire to see it over and over again. What nine times world champion Kelly Slater did on a broken foot to win Bells reproves the definition once again. Thanks for the inspiration to be better at whatever we do when we wake up in the morning, because being human and not alien life form … it will not happen tonight.
