Kelly Slater Discusses Sobriety, Insecurities And His Father's Drinking

Oh, to be a world champ. No! To be an 11x world champ; to be the winningest competitor of all time. Kelly Slater’s had the career of twenty successful men, and to have the career, the longevity, and virility of Kelly, comes from drive – and occasionally demons. Kelly explains insecurities as, “some void you’re trying to fill.” But, 11 world titles, a few companies, a wavepool set to forever change surfing and so many accolades that we become depressed about our lack of while typing them out is enough to clog a landfill – Kelly’s void must be capped off. We shamelessly love an interview from Mr Slater, he’s articulate, candid and insightful. He’s a role model. A professional dream. He’s a four-and-a-half decade miracle.
