A revealing, photographic portrait of 11-time world champion Slater, one of the greatest and most admired surfers in the world.

Glaser’s extensive archive of stunning images—a vast majority of which are previously unseen—is a riveting compilation of some of the best and most iconic images of Kelly Slater in and out of the water. High-action shots of Slater doing what he does best in the vibrant hues of the best waves in the world, in the South Pacific, Australia, Hawaii, California, and Europe, Glaser’s photographs immerse us in the power of the ocean and awaken our thirst for exploration.

This collection celebrates fifteen years of Slater’s exhilarating adventures, from 2008 to 2023: Slater's most iconic surf sessions including the first-ever wave ridden at his Surf Ranch, as well as behind-the-scenes shots inside Slater’s home, from his famous morning pancakes to strumming guitar with his friends.

With personal narration by Slater throughout, this book offers a seldom-seen portrait of surfing’s brightest star in his element, guided by Glaser’s irrefutable passion for his craft.
