Kelly Slater sits on top of the list of 50 of the most influential people in Action Sports, determined by the folks at ESPN.
No athlete has ever dominated a sport like Kelly Slater has. At the age of 40, with 11 world titles, 50 ASP wins and philanthropic efforts to help conserve ocean ecosystems, it doesn’t even matter that he didn’t win the 2012 ASP world title.
