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?! 19h

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 3d

kellyslater So proud of @kalanimiller and @oleemamilker for their first ever @mikoh_ runway show at the #MBFWS tonight. Fun crew on hand and tons of work over the last few months coming to fruition. So good to see the imagination materialize in design. It was a long flight home worth the travel pour moi. #28HoursOfFlying #BetterThanJBay!? #WereInMiamiBitch 7d

kellyslater You watching the #JBayOpen final day? @joelparko and @mfanno are just paddling out now. Tune in and check it. Waves are pumping! @asp #ItsOn live at aspworldtour.com. Good luck, gentlemen. #WishIWasStillInTheContest! 1w

kellyslater I'm excited to announce the launch of @Purps, a project I've been working on for some time now with my friends, Pat Tenore (@pmtenore) and Dr. Chris Schaumburg. #Purps is the result of years of brainstorming between myself and the other founders. The obvious question begs asking...why another drink brand? The mainstream drink market is flooded with high sugar, low nutrient drink options and we wanted to offer better and healthier choices for people to grab on the go. As a brand, the Purps mission is 'To unite Nature and Science to promote your life's Health'. Dr. Schaumburg has worked tirelessly creating and perfecting the #PurpleLifeFormula comprised of 6 Purple Superfruits from around the world, #CertifiedOrganic and #NonGMO. All of our formulas are designed with a purpose from premium ingredients.
#NoArtificialColors #NoPreservatives #PurpsLife #PurpsItForward Check it out at PURPS.com. #MaramingSalamatPMTenore @gopro @cisurfboards

kellyslater @jordysmith88 and I went for a heli ride yesterday with @mrpottz and a couple friends to a game reserve. The South African landscapes are second to none. This looks fake. Sand drift into the Kabeljous (sp?) rivermouth. If you ever have the chance to fly along this coast in a heli and see the dunes, mountains, whales, dolphins and the rest, I highly recommend it. Thanks to the @asp and crew for taking us to the game reserve and apologies for a sub-par performance today in the #JBayOpen. #IExpectMoreOfMyself. 😬 2w

kellyslater I was deeply moved and horribly angered to learn about the plight of #Rhinos throughout Africa (and the world) today firsthand. I know this photo is disturbing but there's no two ways about how barbaric it is to dart a Rhino and chop its distinguishing feature from its face with a hacksaw while it's still alive. If it's still moving on the ground they'll chop its spinal cord or bash their heads to stop the animal from moving and sounding an alarm. Most are left to die a painful death over the next few days. #Poachers killed over 1000 of the world's remaining 25,000 rhinos last year (or >4% of the population) and have already killed at least 560 this year alone (and that's not even addressing the 25,000+/- elephants poached in the past year worldwide, an unbelievable figure!). The Asian market sees the tusk as a form of elite social status (due to the extreme prices It brings) and the myth that it's an aphrodisiac won't die especially since they've started mixing Viagra in with the ground remains and organized crime has taken an interest in the business, compounding the lies to drive prices higher. I'll be posting more about how you can get involved and throw your ideas and support behind the men and women who spend and risk their lives protecting these majestic, prehistoric animals to keep them with us a bit longer. Some of these animals, if found quickly enough, can be stabilized and live through the ordeal. Two animals were found dead a few days ago and may have lived had they not been hidden under thick brush by their poachers. More posts to come and details will be in my bio. Now I know why I practice #Bowhunting... @lukasnelsonpotr and I want to come back to Africa in our next phase of life with @shanedorian and catch guys in the act! How would you handle the situation? #ChipembereRhinoFoundation #SaveTheRhino 2w
  •   orangeamp Not animals are the monsters, but man. Its terrible 12h

  •   goncalopaula This is #inhumane, but unfortunately the #problem doesn't lie in the #poachers, although they should be #punished severely for these #crimes against #nature, but in the #high demand for the #tusk, people who #demand for tusk should see what they're asking for, for the horrible things they're asking others to do for them, because as long as the high demand continues there will be someone providing for the opportunity of easy money and a profitable business, no mater what the costs are for the nature or these poor animals. Unfortunately that's the way the #world works. 9h

  •   aubreyanne3 As heartbreaking and awful as it is, I'm so glad someone as well known as you would put the video you did on your profile. I don't usually care for celebs, seeing as none of us really know them, but that's the reason I follow you. Thanks for posting stuff that happens in real life and always shedding light into important matters! To each their own but I became a full vegetarian last year and I eat dairy from local farmers who I know treat their animals very well. Cheers x 2w
  •   groms_11 Hey @aubreyanne3 I completely agree with you I have been vegetarian since I was 2 years old, and still am. The people in this world can be so cruel! I'm 13 and still new to surfing but @kellyslater is such an amazing surfer, he is unhuman! 2w

kellyslater This was @sonnymillerfilms' final post on Instagram a couple of days ago and how we will all remember him. So sorry to hear of Sonny's passing due to heart attack yesterday. We did a mission to Tonga in '92 together and I realized then that no matter how far from home or how bad the surf, Sonny was always happy and positive and truly epitomized the meaning of being stoked. Surfers will be eternally grateful to Sonny for filming Tom Curren (@curfuffle) in the legendary surf movie, 'Searching For Tom Curren' in the early 90's at #JeffreysBay and beyond. Maybe it's somehow fitting that Tom is currently at Jeffrey's Bay on this sad and fateful day and will surely be surfing in his honor this week. We miss you but we'll keep smiling cause you always made us laugh, Sonny. #OneOfTheGoodGuys @cravegreens 2w

kellyslater This book is unbelievable. The history lessons they don't teach you in school. Written by an old friend of mine, #PeterMaguire (with #MikeRitter), #ThaiStick details everything you didn't know about #DrugSmuggling from everywhere it was available in Asia spreading to the rest of the world from the late 60's thru early 80's. Surfers and the lifestyle it afforded them just happened to be one perfect combination to pull off a lot of covert stuff. Smuggling and scamming offered ex-pats, draft-dodgers, and traveling surfers a means to an end after dodging or avoiding the Vietnam war. You probably won't want to #HolidayInCambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, or Vietnam anytime soon after reading this story (or you might) but you'll learn a lot about the history of this way of life and geography of Indo-Asia. #TimothyLeary and #RichardNixon even make cameos. Book 1 of 2. The stories are too good not to be turned into a tv series or film. #TheReasonSurfersGotABadRep 4w

kellyslater It's been a flat couple of weeks in @tavaruaislandresort but there's no shortage of things to do. Jarrod (sorry I don't know your Instagram name) scored a nice Grouper last night off the corner of #NaMotu. I caught the bait and gaffed it so I sorta helped? I think the @themadhueys would be jealous of this one! #BoatManNation #MasterBaiter? Photo:#TomServais 1mon
