The Inertia

Kelly Slater has been making the media rounds as of late, but this is the most interesting appearance yet. Speaking to VICE Sports, Kelly ponied up to the office bar — office bar!?! — and spilled on animosity between different surfing cultures with East Coast-West Coast-Hawaii-Australia tensions, how being called a “sell out” for playing Jimmy Slade on Baywatch fueled his world title charge, and his once-in-a-lifetime rivalry with Andy Irons.

This is as honest as 11-time world champions get.
