Today marks the 44th birthday of Kelly Slater, so to celebrate we wanted to share some of our favourite clips of the surfing legend. When it comes to finding Kelly footage, we’re seriously spoilt for choice. Over the past couple of decades he’s proved to be one of the world’s most determined and talented surfers, and as a result has amassed a serious amount of footage.

This section from Taylor Steele’s ‘Here & Now’ features Kelly shredding some amazing waves in Fiji alongside friends Alex Gray and Dane Gudauskas.

We couldn’t go past this amazing clip of Kelly scoring perfect barrels at Kirra in the film ‘Xpress Yourself’.

This one’s definitely up there on the list. Kelly riding a monster at Shipstern’s, filmed in super slow motion. From the film ‘Fighting Fear’.

This one’s a classic. Some good old Kelly footage from Taylor Steele’s ‘Days Of Strange’.

Happy birthday Kelly, you bloody legend.
