It’s been a while since Kelly Slater put on a jersey. But the most successful surfer of all time is back in the water winning heats.
Slater is competing in a Qualifying Series (QS) event. The 11-time world champion is warming up for the 2019 Championship Tour (CT) season.
“It’s good to get the feet in the wax and feel that little bit of pressure. None of us surfed great. It was a tight heat. But it’s good to jump into that and see how you react to it.”
