New chapter in the legend of the best surfer of all time. Or at least the one with the most world champion titles: 11. Kelly Slater has started the 2022 season of the World Surf League Championship Tour by winning the Billabong Pro Pipeline.
Said like that, it might seem like just another victory, but it is the eighth time that he has won the prestigious Hawaiian championship. The first was 30 years ago, in 1992. And on February 11 he turns 50.
