Kelly Slater Has Spoken up for Every Surfer, Every Athlete and Every Single Soul Who Truly Values Freedom and the Gifts that Life Bestows Upon us All
As the undisputed greatest surfer of all time…
Kelly Slater has spoken up for every surfer, every athlete and every single soul who truly values freedom and the gifts that life bestows upon us all.
But there’s a flip side to what he’s done.
He’s also inadvertently exposed the weakness and cowardice of the Australian surfing industry on display over the last three years.
we surfers have always been anti establishment and anti anything that would try to contain our free spirits…
spirits that are most happy amongst the raw, real and humbling power of the ocean.
trying to fit into to a society that is the antithesis of the essence of surfing is difficult at the best of times…
but it’s also another kind of wave we have all learned to ride and navigate as best we can…
because most the time,
we just wanna go surf.
Surfers have in many ways,
become the modern archetypes of true freedom…
risking injury, drownings, sharks and sharp reefs…
just for that moment of bliss and indescribable exhilaration that keeps surfers surfing for all their days.
Australia’s surfing history is characterised by some of the wildest and most eccentric personalities you could imagine…
Legendary larrikin types who carved their names into surfing folklore,
embodying the spirit of Australian adventure and fearlessness in the face of real and present danger.
Did you know that Australia has taken more world surf titles than any other nation on the face of the earth??? 🏆
Australia is known for producing the most talented surfers in the world…
but where on earth have all the legends of Aussie surfing been over the last 3 years of this tyrannical and freedom destroying agenda?
Where the bloody hell are you all???
Surfers are deeply connected to the rhythms of life, the tides, the winds and the very pulse of the sea…
and by virtue of that…
we are intuitive, sensitive, observant and we are deeply offended by anything that contravenes or corrupts what is good, true and natural.
What could possibly be more offensive to anyone who values what is natural,
than these mystery 🤐🤐🤐 that have been pushed into the flesh and blood of billions of hapless souls?
How could any real surfer,
any real man or woman who is deeply connected to the force of Life…
not take a stand or a even make a squeak to express their non consent and knowing that all this rollout out was wrong in every conceivable way?
The only explanation is that they were either deceived and bought the lies or,
they are too afraid to speak up and don’t want to cop the backlash that actually comes with speaking the TRUTH.
I could name 20 high profile Aussie surfers who everyone reading this has heard of…
several I know personally…
but you find the vast majority have not said a single word against this agenda.
Nor have they spoken up for the young competitors on the tour who have been coerced into this dangerous experiment just to compete internationally.
Young competitors who are now at risk of a damaged 💔 or worse.
It’s absolutely weak, shameful and cowardly,
and goes against everything that is in the heart and salty blood of every real surfer!
The Australian surfing industry has sadly proven its now become just like all the other sports we used to admire;
spineless, selfish and gutless when it really counted for our people.
As for me…
I’m not a great surfer by any stretch,
but the essence of what it MEANS to be a surfer burns inside me night and day.
Being in the ocean is where I feel closest to God and I’m immersed in all His glory as a truly grateful child.
And as for Kelly.
he has proven that the reason he is the greatest of all time and the greatest that ever will be…
is because he embodies, lives, breathes, acts and SPEAKS straight from the real soul of surfing itself.
If surfing ever had a true king,
he is it 👑
He has stood tall as a shining light for all surfers in a time of darkness…
reminding them all what it’s all really about.
He knew that this whole thing was a sham and an offence to life,
an offence to freedom and he knows that to live and surf freely as men and women of the world…
we are gonna have to fight for it,
because freedom doesn’t come for free,
and silent consent exacts a heavy price on all.
Thank you Kelly 🙏
I hope I shake your hand one day.
And to all the other Aussies surf “legends” out there….
Time to speak up.
Silence is violence.
Maybe time you all remember what being a surfer is really and truly all about.
Better late than never….
but it’s getting VERY late.
