Kelly Slater is arguably the greatest surfer ever, and the 11-time world champion is still doing ridiculous stuff at 46.
While riding a wave during the recent Pipe Masters Event – insert weed joke here – Slater was knocked off his board while in the barrel, but miraculously was able to grab his board, get back on it and finish his run. This makes no sense at all, and you can see by Slater’s reaction that he surprised himself by pulling off the improvised save.
G.O.A.T’s do G.O.A.T things. This is pretty gnar gnar bruh.

Well, that was interesting. I thought I just fell straight onto my belly and bodyboarded out. Didn’t realize I had to grab for it! Haha. Hope I did @mikestewart and @kkandmc proud! Fun day. #Repost @wsl ・・・ ??? 🤯 @kellyslater . . #BillabongPipeMasters #VTCS @billabong @vanssurf
