If you didn’t know any better, you might think Kelly Slater was sort of like Merlin — aging backwards. Because who, at age 39, pulls out competition tricks like this one, letting the young little whippersnappers eat his spray? (Oh, right. Ok, besides Tony Hawk. )
On his first run in the men’s U.S. Open, held in Huntington Beach this week, Slater landed an aerial backside 360 into a reverse.
Super-nice and super-talented works well for this guy. Looks like we still can expect to be seeing it for a while.
