Kelly Slater BILLABONG TAHITA PRO 2013 JERSEY

Affectionately known as the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time), Kelly Slater is without question the winningest, most well-rounded surfer in history. In fact, Slater and his 11 world titles often surface in conversations about the most dominate athletes of all time — in any sport. But for surfers, he’s simply King Kelly. From Sebastian Inlet to Snapper Rocks, Pipeline to Teahupoo, there isn’t a whole lot that Slater hasn’t won.

You can take home Kelly Slater's Billabong Tahiti Pro 2013 contest signed jersey by being the high bidder of this auction item. This item is priceless! Kelly is the unprecedented 11 time World Surfing Champion. This was donated by Jack's Surfboards.

This board is a Dick Brewer masterpiece! This Surftech Gun is truly a beautiful board at 9'6" x 21-1/2" x 3-1/8". During the pivotal time in surfing’s evolution, it was the boardbuilders on the cutting edge that fueled the sport’s progress. And none were perhaps as influential as Dick Brewer. Brewer was inducted into the Surfing Walk of Fame in 2012 for Surf Pioneer. This board was donated by Jack's Surfboards.
