Kel­ly Slater is a liv­ing leg­end. He’s the cur­rent hold­er of 11 ASP World Titles, along with an unprece­dent­ed 52 WCT vic­to­ries span­ning across three decades, and let’s not for­get that he also had a role in Bay­watch for 10 episodes with Pamela Ander­son.

And, he’s not slow­ing down with age.

On March 13, 2013 Slater came rip­ping through the high­ly cov­et­ed Gold Coast bar­rels of Kir­ra Beach, Aus­tralia to take down the rein­ing champ Joel Parkin­son, in the best tubes of the competition.

In the final heat of the head to head show down, Slater edged out Parkinson’s best two waves with a final score of 18.56 out of 20, near­ly a point above Parkinson.

The win solid­i­fies his 11thASP world title mak­ing him the youngest to win, at age 20, and now the old­est to win the ASP World Cham­pi­on title at age 41. This was the open­ing event of the 2013 world tour.

In oth­er words, you could say that he’s a surf god.
