What you see above, in pure numerical terms, are Kelly Slater’s Pipeline finishes through the years. His last finish, you may have heard, was this week. Twenty-nine events, eight wins, the final victory just six days before his 50th birthday. He hasn’t missed an event. In 1992 he was the youngest ever Pipe Master. Now he’s the oldest. And while it may be obvious, only one of those numbers is guaranteed to define him.
