They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but that clearly doesn’t apply to Kelly Slater.
The 46-year-old surfing legend pulled off an unbelievable recovery during a ride at the Billabong Pipe Masters in Hawaii, somehow getting back onto his board after falling off mid-barrel.
And it was further proof for many that the 11-time world surfing champion is the greatest of all time.
In an Instagram post, Slater said: “Well, that was interesting. I thought I just fell straight onto my belly and bodyboarded out. Didn’t realize I had to grab for it! Haha.”
