10x World Champ

Like I mentioned in a previous post, I don’t pay much attention to surfing’s World Tour but it was pretty hard not to notice that Kelly Slater won an incredible 10th world title a few days ago. Literally every surf website and forum is talking about this and posing questions like “is he the greatest sportsman ever?”

Now I think he’s definitely up there with the best, at 38 the man has just won his 10th world title and to do that beat so many younger competitors. The sport is physically demanding aswell but Kelly showed no signs of getting tired or being past it, he was still throwing down moves that made the surf community gasp.

There may be athletes who have more world titles in their chosen discipline but Kelly Slater, to me at least, seems like the planets ultimate sports man at the moment.
