Kelly To Retire After ‘One More Stab’ At The Title
In a recent interview with the WSL 11x World Champion Kelly Slater has confirmed that 2017 will be his last on tour, before dedicating himself to free surfing and other interests.
I'm going to take one more stab at a title next year and really try to put a year together. I'm pretty inspired by what panned out this year...So I'm going to take these next four months, get my body together, and get my motivation and...see if I can really put together a focused year.
Slater’s win in Tahiti at Teahupo’o and his perfect 20 in round 5 proved a motivating force, clearly reinvigorating the great one, he wants more.
