Kelly Slater // 1990 Body Glove Surfbout // 8:45

posted by / Video / September 22, 2011

Twenty-one years later, surprisingly little has changed. Lowers is the same. The winner is the same. And the announcing hasn’t evolved much either. See you in 2032.

    It’s true. Very little has changed. PT is still among the most annoying men of the last 500 years.

    what about the new york times and chas smith?

    Can you say roundhouse wraparound? PT could… a lot. This video also shows the explosion in the popularity of surfing since then. There were only like a hundred people on the beach watching and no mob crowd waiting in the wings as soon as the final horn blew. Ahh, the good ole’ days.

    The announcers used to sound like Used Car Sales men. So much more exciting. I’m gonna go buy a car right now actually…

    The most exciting final I’ve seen all year – not just sitting around hoping to pull off an air and get a ten.

    Swivel hips! Ha ha haaa. Someone read my mind. Llamas with Fletcher’s stinkbug stance. In the 80′s everyone was doing the Twist. Thank God Slater changed that. Browny was ripping too.
