about Kelly SlaterKelly Slater is currently the world's most famous professional surfer. He has won more world surfing titles than any other surfer (11 of them in 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2011). He has been surfing on the ASP world tour since he was 18 years old. He is the youngest surfer to win a world title at just 20 years of age and also the oldest to win the title at 39. Aside from surfing, Kelly sang and played in a band, The Surfers, briefly starred for a season and a half on Baywatch, been featured in dozens of surf films, and helped design surfboard models with shaper Al Merrick. He even has a video game in his likeness (Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer by Activision). Kelly has dramatically changed and improved professional surfing in a positive way. His impact continues, as he came out of semi-retirement to surf the pro tour full-time again after a 3 year break in 2002 and winning back to back world titles in 2005 and 2006. Kelly won his most recent world title handily in 2011.
