Kelly Slater today (1st April) announced he is to quit the world tour after 27 years on tour – in an instagram post to the world he said:

“Big decisions in life don’t come easy and it’s taken a lot of quiet time and personal introspection to come to this conclusion…The #RipCurlPro was the first event I surfed on tour and it’s fitting that this will be my last @wsl. There are too many people to thank and memories to go over but here’s to hoping I can pull a rabbit out of the hat and win one last event this week. My board feels great (thank you @cisurfboards and @travlee) and I’m as psyched as ever to just surf and enjoy. Hope to see everyone down there at #BellsBeach this week. Not the best forecast but I’m channeling my #FloridaRoots!”

Rumours are circulating that the king of surfing has decided to swap boards for irons & is looking to spend more time on the golf course, along with his mission to create the worlds best artificial wave.
