'Kelly Slater for the Love' bio released by Chronicle Books

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 October, 2008 : - - This month, Kelly Slater won an unprecedented 9th surfing world championship. Next month Chronicle Books releases 'Kelly Slater: For the Love' in which Kelly Slater talks about what it is like to be Kelly Slater: professional surfer, world-class athlete, environmental and social activist, musician and worldwide celebrity.

Whether it is for the love, for the money or for the fun, Kelly Slater has done it all--ridden the best waves, won a record number of world championships, and changed surfing forever. "Kelly Slater: For the Love" is his story in his own words. It's a riveting visual tour of an unconventional and unparalleled life.

Veteran surf journalist Phil Jarrat interviewed Kelly and dozens of Kelly's closest friends and fellow surfers (Tom Curren, Shaun Thompson, Jeff Hornbaker, Pamela Anderson, Eddie Vedder, and more) to capture untold stories, intimate memories, and great moments, along with Kelly's thoughts on politics, environmental advocacy, music, surfboard design, the highs and lows of competition, and what it feels like to be inside the tube.

Filled with previously unpublished photographs from some of surfing's most celebrated photographers, Kelly Slater: For the Love offers total access to the inner workings of the best surfer on the planet today.  

'Kelly Slater: For the Love' By Kelly Slater with Phil Jarratt. Foreword by Jack Johnson. 192 pp, 200 color photos. Publication Date: November 17, 2008
