Publisher's Summary

Soon to be an ABC reality series entitled Ultimate Surfer, starring 11-time World Surf League champion Kelly Slater.

Eleven-time world surfing champion, actor, and American heartthrob Kelly Slater tells his inspiring story of triumph over adversity.

From Beach Blanket Bingo to Baywatch to Blue Crush, surfing has fascinated people for years, and Kelly Slater is the sport’s hottest star. He has won more world championships than any other competitor, and he continues to change peoples’ minds about what can and can’t be done on a surfboard. His wild ride has included fame, fortune, a stint on Baywatch, and a high-profile relationship with Pamela Anderson. Not bad for a skinny kid from a broken home in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

In Pipe Dreams, Kelly takes the listener into oceans around the world to take on thunderous walls of water and shares the outrageous stories, solemn moments, and undeniable spirit that have made him a superstar.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

Not bad

The narrator mispronounces many crucial words and the story is incomplete. Easy listen though

Geting to Known Kelly...

Great "Reading" for a surfer, longtime fan... surprised he was once scaried of Bigsurf, and of how tiring can the tour be.

intensely irritating. every second grated.

This guy has no sense of humour or humility. The book is simply around 20 hours of him blowing smoke up his own jacksie. He is also a terrible narrator. In the end I just wanted to reach into my phone and punch him in the face until he stopped talking.

An easy listen

I enjoyed the personal stories but there was a chunk of the book which listed one surf contest after another that Kelly attended, how he performed, what scores he received. Perhaps that's necessary for continuity, but it got a little tiresome and repetitive. Other than that, it was an interesting insight into the surfing world.
