Kelly Slater Quotes and Sayings – The best quotes from the champ

Kelly Slater Quotes and Sayings – The best quotes from the champ.

We honour Kelly Slater by presenting his best quotes and sayings. His recent victory at Fiji Pro 2013 was nothing but spectacular, and we have decided to celebrate his perfect heat with these spoken gems. Golden words spoken by the champion.

 

Age taken into consideration, some skeptics have asked Kelly how he keeps on going – and how he carries his drive forward?

KS: “How do I carry on? With a cane.”

 

How does a ASP surf champion start his day?

KS: “I generally start my day off with hot water and lemon – to cleanse the body out after sleeping. I read about it and it seemed like a good idea. I drink a lot of coconut water, too. I generally stick with fruit in the morning. I make a lot of smoothies.”

 

How did you get so incredibly good – and how did you get your surf style so flawless?

KS: “I kept a log of every heat I lost, and I would write at the bottom what I did wrong – ‘impatience’ or ‘catching too many waves.’ I would get mad at myself for missing a turn and I’d bang my head and fists against the board, head-butt it, cursing, ‘You stupid fuck!’ Only no one saw that, because I was out on the water.”

“I want to surf better tomorrow. I want to surf better in 10 years. When I’m 50 I want to be a better surfer than I am now – for me it’s a lifelong journey.”

A feat he is well under way of accomplishing!

 

“I love waking up in the morning in Hawaii.”

“I think any kind of smoking is a really odd way to spend any time or money.”

 

Kelly Slater’s biggest influence and inspiration?

KS: “Matt Kechele was a huge influence, but when I was about 8 years old I started really looking up to Buttons. Tom Curren, too, once I grew even older. Buttons was my guy though. I thought he could go upside down under the lip and stay on his board. That was the future to me.”

 

KS: “Your surfing can get better on every turn, on every wave you catch. Learn to read the ocean better. A big part of my success has been wave knowledge.”
