Review: Pipe Dreams by Kelly Slater

Pipe Dreams: A Surfer’s Journey
HarperCollins 2003

A lucid autobiography by the world’s best surfer, this book recounts Robert Kelly Slater’s prodigious ride from the next big thing to the king.

Motivational, frank and humble, this is a great read and will leave you realising that behind every superstar there really is a normal person, albeit one with freakish talent and incredible dedication.

The good
• Insight into the world of Sl8ter
• Realising how much work goes into becoming a champion

The not so good
• Nothing really but you may get jealous!
