kellyslater My next post was going to be dedicated to @gabrielmedina but I think I'll let you wait for that one since it doesn't sound like you're all done telling me off yet. So let me know when you're finished so we can continue with the #TeahupooDiary2014 feed and get back to being civil with one another... #MuitoObrigado #TheViewFromTheChannel #BillabongProTahiti @kidpeligro by @jamie_mitcho 17h

  •   glmocean Determination and sportsmanship.... What a great contest to watch from my CPU with all SC wahines! 7min
  •   brazinni You can't compare Gabriel to Slater. Gabriel is very good, but very greedy. He forces his surfing very often. That fucks up his surfing style. Slater is one of the most stylish mainstream surfers, the most inteligent and experienced surfer of all times. He is an obsessive compulsive freak, out of this world. 4min

kellyslater Well...I'm not quite sure how to download and convey what transpired this past week. One day #RayKurzweil will figure out a device to just tap our brains and download #PostSurf all of our memories in photo form but until then I'll start loading the feed with this by @brentbielmann from yesterday. What I thought was a mind-bending experience in round one only expanded as the #BillabongProTahiti went on and the swell kept throwing heaters at us. Congratulations to everyone involved this week. I'm honored and baffled to say that after literally 25 years since I surfed my first world tour event as a teenager, I'm still having unforgettable experiences each and every year. Thank you to everyone who charged and pushed the rest of us to up our games in the comfortability factor (@owright and @john_john_florence most notably). I'm glad to see very few and only minor injuries during the event. If you didn't get the chance to watch or wanna check highlights, head over to the link in my bio and click thru the news or heats with the #HeatAnalyzer. @asp #NotGladThatsOver #TeahupooDiary2014 18h

kellyslater #ItsOn right now. You guys watching this?! Today is gonna be interesting. Biggest I've seen a contest day at Teahupoo since 2002 when they called it off during a round. I know 2011 was bigger, smart guys, but the event never ran that day! Ha. #LetsDoThis @asp by @badboyryry_ from yesterday. 2d
  •   semourad Go get him Legend @kellyslater We know how you need challenges...like get better as grow older and to keep up with the youngsters; this kid came up to fire you up. Im from Braza but cheer for you always...bring it on champ 21h

  •   johnnyhimmelsbach @kellyslater yo Kelly was that John John heat the greatest heat you've ever been in?..... It's gotta be up there with the machado high five, the Andy pipe, the jbay grey suit, thoughts??? 16h
  •   ishc @kellyslater you sir are not only a #surflegend but a class act individual. Please continue to be the person you are so kids can have a real role model. 15h
  •   jmansfield94 Toughest loss in a final for you since Andy? You and John John are both better than medina at chopes. That semi should've been the final, that was the climax in performance of the contest and by far the best display of tube riding at teahupoo, ever. It was truly a privilege to watch you surf. You flirt with retirement every year but you're so damn good it would be an injustice to run the tour without you. I sure hope you stay on tour for a while. P.S. Take it to Medina these last few events! @kellyslater 11h

kellyslater #FlashbackFriday with @phillyglove at @tavaruaislandresort last year playing an unreleased song he did with #CitizenCope. "You don't need a ski mask, you ain't even gotta run fast..." Where's that tune at, G? @lazyeyephone : @toddglaser 5d

kellyslater From my round one heat the other day. When I took off I saw @glenhall81 paddling back out but was so focused down the line that I never saw his board nearly take my head off until watching the video later. That was the best day I've ever surfed at #Teahupoo. Hoping for more big, clean conditions for the remainder. Looks clean on weekend and big on Monday. #CrossYourFingers for some more of this. And to everyone who charged that first day, thank you! Nothing more exciting on earth than watching guys turn, put their heads down and go when it's bombing. : @tomservaisjr. He just signed on to @instagram. One of the all-time great surf photographers so give him a follow.

kellyslater Never gets old a Tahitian sunset. This will serve as your first alarm for Monday's contest at #Teahupoo. I'm in heat number one, starting at 8am Hawaii/11am Pacific/2pm Eastern and it will be entertaining. Expect the biggest surf we've had for the duration of the contest period to be happening this week. I hope everyone tunes in. Link will be in my bio. Almost getting scared already. Time for us all to #PutUpOrShutUp. #TailsBetweenLegs #SeparateTheMenFromTheBoys #YouWontGo #ModernDayPostcards

Did I miss any hashtags? Write any appropriate ones you can think of. Best one wins nothing but they'll be fun to read.

kellyslater Met #NelsonTynes who makes #LivingGourmet foods at @sunlifeorganics yesterday. Then as I was taking this picture today he texted me. Strange synchronicity. His food/nutrition knowledge was mind bending. I've been frustrated lately with friends who've let themselves go and are either surprised with their ailing health or just resigned to it and do nothing about it. I know people who've cured their own cancer, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, macular degeneration, drug addictions and a whole host of other problems with the right attitude and a little knowledge. There is literally no reason for half of this world to be sick and/or obese and either waiting to die one day or expecting some medical miracle. The promising thing is that a ton of my friends in the last couple years have gone on a health kick and educated themselves and inspired each other to get in the best shape of their lives. Your health is the most important thing you own. Think about that next time you eat junk and complain about the price of good quality organic food. Most people eat too many food combinations together and too much food in general and don't realize they're allergic to or inflamed by foods like corn, wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, etc. The food education we get in school is mostly pathetic and funded by companies/lobbies that want kids addicted to their products for life with no regard for anyone's health. I left school with no real knowledge about what I should eat and how to nourish myself. Now I'm healthier and stronger at 42 than I was at 20 and more on top of my game (well, maybe not lately! 😬). What's stopping you or inspiring you? I wanna be healthy and get barreled at Backdoor when I'm 90 years old. What's your goal? #GetOnIt #DeadDoctorsDontLie #FoodCombining #AlkalineFoods #HealthyFats #LongStory 2w

kellyslater Last week in #MosselBay, South Africa we went cage diving with #GreatWhites. Firstly, it's unbelievable to be this close to one of the world's apex predators. They're such be beautiful, stealth creatures. Secondly, it's an interesting debate as to whether this sort of thing should even be allowed. It's not science but common sense that tells me familiarizing great whites with humans and fish blood probably isn't the best thing to do. I'd love to freedive with them but I'd need way more understanding of these creatures to attempt that. A couple of my friends, like @donkeyshow, have swum with great whites and hitchhiked fin rides off of them. Whatever the answer, I am stoked I got to experience it first hand and grab a tail or two thru the safety of the cage. Here I am getting my @GoPro shot while @djstruntzphoto shoots from above. I'll find a good video or two to post from underwater. #HowMuchMoneyToSwimOneLapAroundTheBoat?! 1mon

kellyslater Got caught on the way in to #TodayPlaza by this guy. I didn't even know where I was gonna be this morning but this guy was on it. Interview on the #NBCTodayShow to find out #MattLauer's level of surfing. Apparently he shreds. I need evidence. #SurfersInNYC 1mon
