Kelly Slater may be the last guy you’d expect to have said this, but you know what we’re always told about making assumptions.
Réunion Island is mourning yet another shark attack this week after 26-year-old Alexandre Naussance was attacked and killed by a shark in a stretch of coast where water activities are banned. It’s now the 20th attack on Réunion in just over five years. At this point, any attack or encounter here is a global headline with the level of tragedy the island’s people have endured over the years. And that’s why it wasn’t a surprise to see Jeremy Flores sharing his thoughts and taking part in the mourning after Naussance died before even getting to a hospital. But Kelly Slater’s response to an Instagram post from Flores is, like I said, something you might not have expected.
