Kelly is famous for his competitive and powerful style on the water. He has replaced the legendary Mark Richards as the most successful surfer of all time. In addition to his many world records, he was also the first surfer ever to acheive receive a seven-figure reward from the sport. Kelly Slater has appeared in numerous surfing events over the years, and continues to compete and break surfing records to this day. This kind of success has also won him the third place on the list of the richest surfers in the world. For many years he has been sponsored by the Quicksilver brand which provided him with surfing equipment and gear but in 2014, to many people’s surprise, Kelly Slater announced the end of their long-time collaboration. Among other sponsors of Kelly Slater are GoPro, Komunity project, Chia seeds and Channel Islands.

Slater is also known outside the word of surfing. He has appeared in eight episodes of the famous TV series “Baywatch” as Jimmy Slad. This handsome American was included in the list of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” and there were rumours of him dating such beauties as Cameron Diaz and Gisele Bundchen. So, the entertainment business welcomed the young sportsman with a warm embrace. Naturally, the athlete has been involved in numerous media projects that popularize surfing, such as “2008 Globe Pro Fiji” and “Surf Chronicles”. In addition, he has lent his voice to a character of the same name in an animated movie “Surf’s Up”.Additionally, he has published three books on surfing, which have of course added to his net worth.

Despite his glorious achievements and worldwide celebrity status, Kelly Slater tries to be as vocal about social issues as possible. From early on Slater decided to use his status and voice to help people who struggle with psychological problems. He is actively involved in the “Surfers against Suicide” initiative. The community’s primary goal is to raise awareness about the problem of suicide among surfers and promote healthy lifestyle. Slater himself has confessed that he has lost some of his closest friends to suicide. When he is not surfing, Slater does his best to try and find time to communicate with people and deliver motivational speeches regarding this increasing problem. Involvement in such social activities has made his name even more famous.

In his personal life, following a well-publicised relationship with actress Pamela Anderson for several years, Kelly Slater’s partner for the last six years has been Kalani Miller, who travels with him consistently .This heavyweight surfing champion is a true icon in the world of sports and his financial success not surprising at all.

TV ShowsTrippin', Baywatch
1It's a perfect wave when small and the most beautiful and scary wave on Earth when it's big, as the swell from deep water hits the shallow reef ledge. A ten-foot high wave and a 30-footer break in the same depth of water.
2My belief is that 'heaven' and 'hell' are metaphorical terms for what you make of your life. In any instant, you have the ability to make your life total pleasure or total hell.
3There are so many different elements to surfing. Small waves, big waves, long boards, short boards. This makes it a sport you can share with people. It's not just a solitary thing - it's become a family thing, too. It's about exercising and passing something on from father to son, and from mother to daughter.
4A wave isn't like a skate ramp or mountain; everything's moving around and you have to time how to move along with it. That's easier with a slow wave.
5Big waves are a whole different ball game. You're riding a wave with an immense amount of speed and power, generally over 10 meters. On the face of the wave, obviously life and death thoughts start to happen.
6I feel like an ambassador for surfing at this point. I'm happy to go and play that role and share that where I can in certain areas of the mainstream media that doesn't get the surfing attention.
7I surf more now for other people than myself. I feel a lot of support from people wanting me to do well, and I feed off that. I can send a positive message to people from what I do.
8I've been in a poor physical shape many times in my career and I've had some of my best results. My best performances happened because my mind was in the right place. The mind is definitely stronger than the body.
9Most anything I've ever set my mind to, I could accomplish.
10Most of what Hawaii has to offer is no secret. Pipeline is probably the most famous wave in the world.
11Surfing is my religion, if I have one.
12When I'm 50 I want to be a better surfer than I am now - for me it's a lifelong journey.
13A lot of times I'll see guys who are nowhere near the level of the board they're riding. They might love surfing and love how it looks, but you really have to work your way up. It takes eating a little humble pie at first, and stepping back to equipment that might be a bit slow, but do it.
14Fatherhood isn't always a planned thing, but when it happens you just do it. It's very natural and in that sense it's not really difficult.
15For a surfer, it's never-ending. There's always some wave you want to surf.
16I still feel like my best surfing is ahead of me.
17I wanted to be a comedian.
18Maintaining marriage seems to be tougher than fatherhood: apparently it's the most difficult thing in the world.
1Had relationship with Gisele Bündchen.
