Kelly Slater

Big congrats to @acebuchan and his @hurley crew for the win in the #BillabongPro at #Teahupoo yesterday. It was really hard to watch you stroke into that first good wave and not be able to do anything about it! Had a great few days here. Thanks to everyone for tuning in to check it. I got pinned underneath a jet ski sled on the reef in round 4 and got a grade 1 tear in my left shoulder from a wipeout in the quarter finals but no complaints here. All part of the fun. Thanks to @raimanaworld @stephenisbelly @quiksilver @cisurfboards @kalanimiller @freddyp808 @travislogie @floresjeremy and everyone I’m forgetting. Back home to rest up for a couple of weeks before Trestles begins. @peterkinglajolla @surfinista #FirstPlaceLoser #IfYouAintFirstUrLast via Instagram
