10-Time World Champion Stars in IMAX
Kelly SlaterKelly Slater was the youngest surfer to ever win a world championship, and with his most recent win, is now the oldest surfer to win one as well! Earlier this month Slater won his 10th World Title in Puerto Rico, an amazing feat. His surfing career spans two decades, and he owns every record there is to own in the sport, including an unparalleled 45 event wins. You can catch him in action in THE ULTIMATE WAVE TAHITI at the Fleet. Congratulations to Kelly!
