What is Kelly Slater thinking? What’s his caper? And at 41, where’s he at with this whole surfing thing anyway? Well in this issue of SW, you can find out for yourself as Kelly sits down with Sean Doherty a month out from Pipeline to talk motivation, Mick Fanning and what he thinks about bearded hipsters who ride single fins. Spoiler: He don’t get it. Elsewhere in the mag we chat to those long serving Tour twins, The Hobgoods, whose love of surfing is matched only by their love of Jesus. We also scope out new books from Trent Mitchell, Tim Baker and Richie Lovett, we milk some wisdom from the ample bosom and lactating teets of former Tour power-man Mick Lowe, and we pay tribute to the funnest surfer in the world, a man affectionately known as Buttons. And if all that ain’t enough, we’ve gone and thrown in a 2014 Calendar shot by Kelly Slater himself with a GoPro. See what the best surfer in the world sees, every day of next year. Yep, this things is a glory book and you should own it today.
