Man, ignorant ppl hate a winner.  They slam them for it if they win too much. and give up on them if they don't win at all. confusing.  Or is it just herd mentality of ignorant masses. Slater is my fn hero. Idc if he is 60 and still trying to enter pipe pro and placing in top 3. I ALWAYS WANT HIM TO WIN, HE IS LEGEND. So hate on that you fools

Such a heavy interview at the end, Kelly so humbled, i truly believe that statement he made about channeling in with AI, next thing you know he gets the award with just an absolutely incredible performance, and no doubt about it, he is getting toward the end of his career, beast at his age....Of course no disrespect to the other surfers but, damn Kelly is killing it still.

I agree with +Josh White there are tons of 44+ YO guys out there in all kinds of extreme sports doing incredible thing and not taking PEDs or shit. I get +judd liliha point that he MIGHT be taking something for enhancing resistance, but you can't take that as a sure thing based on his doings at his age... I mean, he is a 44 YO top athlete that lives for the sport, and regarding the competitive part, that's just in one's blood. If you have a competitive personality it will stay with you no matter how old you are!

I hate how WSL only uploads videos of heats that are HIGHLIGHTS...... HEY WSL Upload the ENTIRE heat ... so we can experience the tension, emotion when no waves come for 10 minutes ... etc etc..

Someone at the WSL site even made a request in the feedback on your site for it and hope everyone that views this video finds that on the feedback and upvotes/joins that request...

Watching the highlights we get to see the highest scored waves but not the EMOTION the TACTICS the SUSPENSE of each heat...

PLEASE START UPLOADING ENTIRE HEATS.

JJF is great, man I love to see him surf. But when Kelly Slater is on his shit it's no contest. I think JJF and Medina will have rivalies when Kelly retires like Slates and Andy Irons had back in the day. The future of Pro Surfing is looking good. So many damn good surfers on the tour right now.

MrOshutup
MrOshutup - 5 years ago
difficulty... dropping in like JJ did (and it wasn't a set wave) got a respectible score, then kelly does almost save tube but a turn and float.. so it's pretty close and what Bruce949 said. They ALWAYS score lower on the first wave (even on set waves) to leave a margin for something EPIC to happen and deserve a 10.
13dirty666
13dirty666 - 5 years ago
+bruce949 I would agree before 2014, but ever since Kelly got a 10 in the first 5 minutes of a heat in the chopes semi (funnily enough against JJF) I feel the judges are a bit inconsistent with how they score the first wave. Still every wave after should compare with each other and not be unique to themselves
bruce949
bruce949 - 5 years ago
The first waves in a heat are always scored more conservatively... It's hard to come out of the box with a 9 or 10.

Haus Tuning People need to get it out of their head that being in your 40's as a man is old! This isn't the 1950's anymore.. people are training in the gym 4x - 6x a week, earing better diets, not smoking nearly as much, etc. I feel even better now at 42-Then I did at 25! I still jam on my guitar everyday as well and the only reason why I am not in the ocean right now is because of the Great White sharks between Seal Beach and Dana Point in Southern California! Don't let the idiot box TV program you into thinking that you are slowing down somehow at 40...I know I am not but I didn't break a lot of bones or rear tendons and such so maybe that's why I still attack life so much.

Thanks for your comment... To compare Kelly to a normal 40 year old surfer is ridiculous, but comparing a 44 to a 20 something John John.... Look.... surfing will be in the Olympics, USADA will test. we will see if any of these guys are cheating some how. There or a number of things that help with recovery time, oxygen boosters, banned stimulants. Its not just strength and roids. .

WSL wants their surfers competing at the highest level. from my understanding there is no testing and they dont care.

My question to you Fidel.... do you care of surfers take PEDs? I have had this conversation with a number of people and even some pro surfers. Some people dont even care.

Someone compared surfing to golfing. He said how much assistance would PED give golfers? He compared surfing to having more skill then anything else.

Is a dude taking TRT cheating???? what so you think.... interested in your opinion, thanks.
Fidel Montoya

I'm calling bullshit on your claim, judd liliha. I am 48, take nothing, and do pretty well for myself in waves of consequence. I still visit Bali and other great surf locations and regularly outlast and outsurf plenty of guys younger than me. Once you have the experience with bigger waves, you minimize your energy expenditure by timing sets, positioning and wave selection. Myself, Kelly and many other older surfers regularly have surf sessions in excess of 4 hours. A 30 minute heat where you obviously rest between sets, is nothing compared to a 4 hour session in crowded conditions. There isn't a drug out there that would give Kelly any advantage. He puts his board in the right place at the right time, does it better than anyone and that's the end of the story. He avoids injury because his wave selection prevents him from taking bad waves that could injure him. Not because of drugs.

My personal knowledge of Kelly(I was in Hawaii for 5 years during the winter contests) is he used to have a few beers, back in the day, when socializing, but now drinks nothing. He likes to go to bed early. He likes sweetened cereal(although this could be different now) for breakfast, eats plenty of protein and, for the most part, avoids junk food. There's nothing more I can say except the burden of proof is on you since you made the claim that he's taking "something".

This man was 50 years old at the time and everyone agrees his two best waves would have won any heat against anyone he absolutley ripped the fuck out it and he regulary surfs like that is he on peds also? 44 isnt old mate if you take care of yourself

+judd liliha how do you explain the other contest's this year that were more technical.. the younger guys dominated... but in a contest where more knowledge and experience is needed... he edges out the best(next to Julian and medina) by 4 points?
judd liliha
judd liliha - 5 years ago
Josh just answer this question.... would u give a rip if he is taking PED, or would you have a different opinion about him? Do you think its wrong..... thats the question.

He is the best that ever is and was.... no one comes close... love watching him surf. But if you ask me if a 44 year old man can compete naturally on that level.... i would say your bat shit crazy...

The only arena you see 44 year olds winning, is golf, car racing, and bowling.. If you are telling me surfing is on the same level of physical exertion as golf and bowling this conversation is over.

lance also made the same claims. If USADA says hes clean.... hes clean... they are the only reputable source. They also caught the un.....catchable.... Bruddah lance.

The logic in me says.... something is fishy.... i have seen competition at the highest levels and what people do to stay relevant. Not always about money....

+judd liliha so kelly has to pay for lances legacy is that right? After kellys 2013 win at kirra someone suggested he was doping and he was furious and offered to pay for his own tests he actually advocates for more testing, but the point is that you are clearly missing here is that even on the best peds on the planet YOU CAN NOT do what kelly just did at teahupoo it is ocean knowledge and talent case closed

Come on man... hes banged the most beautiful women in the world and partied with the craziest people in the world. Im not saying hes snorted coke to get amp before a heat..... i am saying PED... PED is not bad for you... the are an enhancement....

The only way to know is have USADA test him.... he will never do this. You can believe what you want.. I love watching him surf.... like I said, the question is if you care or not he is taking PED. Some guys dont care.... but I am in the camp that its BS. let the new generation do their thing.

+judd liliha you need to read "pipe dreams" and you'll learn about how Kelly grew up with alcoholics and because of that has been eating healthy, getting his rest, never showing sunburn, never showing inconsistency. he's like a soldier

Guaranteed he's not taking anything. Kelly treats his body like an absolute temple man, that's his secret... This guy eats extremely healthy and trains constantly.

+judd liliha no its not cool but my whole point is how ridiculous it is that he would be as every fibre of his being is devoted to clean living and eco friendly and sustainable products and do some research the wsl have been drug testing since about 2011! He is taking something though it is called chia seeds and fresh fruit and veges haha
judd liliha
judd liliha - 5 years ago
and your telling me if he is taking something that its cool.... answer the question brah
judd liliha
judd liliha - 5 years ago
that is ridiculous..... thats funny because i guarantee he is taking something... A 44 year old dude cannot do the things he does naturally..... He is amazing.... when they do Olympic testing.... this topic will come up. And Josh I'm going to tell you that when money and pride is on the line... people do things out of their character.... seen it first hand. You sound like my wife ranting on Lance Armstrong..... you would be surprised...
Josh White
Josh White - 5 years ago
+judd liliha but it is not even an issue even if he was it is not going to help you when you have a teauhpoo wave barreling towards you it is his mind that is doing all the work he was doing those freaky take offs at pipe when he was 20 was he on peds then also? PEDS wont help you negotiate mother nature or teach you ocean sense, he is a freak allways has been and i can guarantee u he is as clean as they come
judd liliha
judd liliha - 5 years ago
If he was, would you be pissed......??? Just connecting the dots.... things smell too disneyland good to be true. If he is i think he should stop competing.
Josh White
Josh White - 5 years ago
+judd liliha the thing is you are basically saying thathe is definietly taking peds when you have absolutley no evidence or basis to assume that! And my point is surfing is not like any other sport i am 40 and i just went on a surf trip and surfed for 6 hours every single day and not tired at all but i couldnt run 500 metres to save my life! It is more about flexibility and muscle movement and kelly spends alot of time on keeping flexible
judd liliha
judd liliha - 5 years ago
They rip but they are not competitive surfers my man.... Those people you named cannot compete with a 23 year old JJF or Medina.... come on.... you know how exhausting it is to do 3 to 4 competitive heats in tahiti in one day??

Thats the debate... if people care if their surfers take PEDs....You obviously dont care....

I my opinion I think its unfair to the fellas not doing it... at 40 you produce half the amount of testosterone as a 20 year old..... to perform on that level.... Lance Armstrong... tendencies... defying nature....
Josh White

+Christopher Chun he is not running the hundred metres against usain bolt or running a marathon he just paddles into waves and gets barrelled look at all the older guys curren occy even rabbit and he is over 60 and still rips kelly just doesnt smoke or drink and looks after himself, no peds whatsoever
judd liliha
judd liliha - 5 years ago
Think WSL took my comment off the message board......
judd liliha
judd liliha - 5 years ago
Yup!!! ... How many 44 year old dudes can do that.... That is my whole point.... If your not bowling or golfing, fatigue plays a huge role in competitive surfing. What else is comparable.... a 44 year old dude on the SLS??

My guestimate is hes taking something.... Granted he has the best technique probably ever, is an anomaly, I am a huge fan and love watching him surf. I have seen him over a dozen time at the pipe masters. If a surfer is not from Hawaii, I'm cheering for Kelly.

But I bet the farm hes taking testosterone or some other PED. Is it a bad thing.... ???? thats the debate... Personally I think its cheating..... Granted they are not punching each other in the face.... But competition wise?? would he be as competitive if he wasnt taking anything. Surfing is in the Olympics, it will be interesting to see if they test surfers.

The real debate is do you care if surfers take PEDs. Is it ethical or people dont care??

Would PEDs help him stay on his board after air dropping a double overhead wave? It's nothing different or better than anything he's done countless times in his career.

Very inspired right now. My two favorite surfers head to head i was hoping for john john but ether way this was a overwhelming heat for me to watch. Definitely was a little emotional on this one, I'm stoked for kelly to finally get back in the grove of it and john getting his well earned place on the top of the wls yeeeww. Good luck to all the surfers

WSL stole the Medina, the true finalist and I'm sure that would be the champion of the stage, would rather the Brazilian! That's a shame for the World Surf League.
