Kelly Slater scores a Perfect 10 at the age of 47

Off 17

He’s 47 years old, but he surfs like a fired-up grom. Kelly Slater has done it again. Here’s another flawless wave ride for his curriculum.

Eleven-time world champion and seven-time Billabong Pipe Master Kelly Slater earned a Perfect 10-point ride for an unthinkable right-handed Backdoor barrel that he deemed the best in years.

“That’s the best wave I’ve had out here in a few years, I think, at Backdoor. I kept trying to doggy door the thing and I couldn’t, and I was like, ‘No it’s not going to let me out, it’s not going to let me out!'” explained Slater.
