Video: Slater Surfing Goofy
In honor of International Left Handed Day, Quiksilver released a mirrored edit of a Slater highlight reel showing the champ surfing as if he were a goofy- footer. Nobody would dare say he wouldn’t have captured as many victories at natural-footer favoring venues like Snapper and J-Bay, but it would have at least evened the playing field.
Unsurprisingly, Kelly is actually a talented switch-foot surfer. In-fact, he and Shane Dorian used to surf first switch on the first wave of their head to head heats.
Today, Kelly is equip to pull any trick out of the book in order to bag a 10 point ride in a heat. The 40 yr old reigning world champ will tell you that attention to detail has been the difference in his career. His signature Cypher Kelly Nomad boardshorts give him the agility and performance to stay a step ahead of the high flying youngsters gunning for his throne.

Remember when Paul Fisher was yelling at Slater with a megaphone from the HB pier during the US Open? Well, this would be a solid video to play a joke on that Aussie heckler.
