kellyslater #HBD to my #Godson, #ActionJackson... #LittleMonster destined for big things in life. The day he was born, @gotfilm snapped a water shot of me in a perfect #Mundaka barrel with a rainbow in the offshore spray. 'Twas a good omen. Miss you, little buddy! I need a new barrel shot of you from the next swell, JackJack. #BeyBladeOctagonBattle next time we meet! #LetErRip!!! 22h

kellyslater Never pass up an opportunity to spend time with friends and family. My friend, #KalaniFoster (with wife Ednette) is doing it tough in his battle with cancer and I wish I could be there with you guys now. If you've ever surfed a good day at #Haleiwa in the past 40 years, you've likely seen Kalani on the beach or on the bombs from out the back at Haleiwa Beach Park. His brother, Marvin, always looked out for me and Kalani has always been a good friend and I'm reminiscing on so many good sessions we've shared over the years. Sending you good thoughts and well wishes to feel better, my friend. 1w

kellyslater It's been a long time coming and I'm proud to let you know that the clothing brand I've been working on has launched our 'Handshake Website' at Outerknown.com this morning. Our team, lead by designer John Moore and supported by our strategic partner, The Kering Group, are tirelessly working on a brand that blends the relationship between style, sustainability, and travel. I believe we have an obligation to build better products and understand the way our consumption impacts the world around us. In saying that, the focus of our brand is to make a product that has a positive effect on every possible level. I look forward to telling you more as the brand develops and beginning today you can follow our daily feed at @Outerknown to learn more.

kellyslater As surfers, we are lucky to spend so much of our time immersed in the ocean. This being so, we are directly effected by changes in the quality of the water that surrounds us. Protecting the ocean's ecosystem is our duty. We are its stewards. Wild salmon not only feed humans but they play a vital role in the ecosystem as they drive ocean-borne proteins up rivers and thousands of miles inland to become integrated into the ecosystem - feedings birds, bears, trees, and bugs. The culture and history of our coastal communities is based on having healthy fisheries. While wild salmon struggle throughout the Pacific, Bristol Bay thrives as the greatest source of wild sockeye on the planet. We cannot let it be threatened by a massive open pit gold mine at it's headwaters.

  •   creature28 @kellyslater I agree with you 100%. All of the waterways and our oceans are at risk thanks to big business. I'm working with a company that has developed an Eco-friendly surf blank and foam in general that is completely inert to the environment. There are no petroleum bi-products and every blank produced has a negative carbon footprint. Larry Bertlemann is working with us and we will be main stream very soon! 1w

kellyslater There's always that one in the back of your head you wonder about. This was the only set I paddled over last week and regretted afterwards. Sure there were plenty I didn't think twice about but this one kinda had that look like maybe you could get down it. @owright assured me I made a good decision. You agree, @dionatkinson? Some freaking monsters last week and quite a few you didn't want to look in the eyes. #MedusaWave Round 4 @ the #BillabongProTahiti #TeahupooDiary2014 @brentbielmann 4w

kellyslater On stage at the awards ceremony...Congrats are in order for @gabrielmedina and his performance this week. There are more conversations happening about this guy than anyone and for good reason. He's the most dangerous guy in the world of surfing. Why? Just this year he won at Snapper, a wave dominated by regular footers for over 10 years. He won in fiji, one of the classic waves on tour. And now he wins the #BillabongProTahiti in giant surf, an event that he wasn't considered to be a main threat by many people. That's exactly why Medina has become so dangerous...he can and does win in waves/conditions where he doesn't even have a lot of experience at yet and people don't know what to expect. He's more determined and hungry for the win than any other surfer. He's complete, combining airs, barrel riding, and carving. He can shoot whole video parts in single sessions. He has passed every test thrown his way. Even though I'm gonna do everything in my power to stop this guy this year, I'm a big fan of his surfing and he's a really good guy. The biggest obstacles he will face in his career will be staying motivated long-term and dealing with a fanatical, Brasilian fan base (#BrasilianSwarm?) that is resting the hopes of a country on his shoulders. I'm sure he'll accept and handle that challenge like every other one thrown his way so far. Congratulations for your #Teahupoo win and hold on for a huge career ahead. #ThisGuyShreds #HisFansWannaKillMe #TeahupooDiary2014 @asp @gopro 4w

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 4w

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 4w

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. 4w
  •   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. 4w
  •   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 4w
