TheCollective's photo of Namotu Left

Kelly Slater's a renowned chart hound, so it's no surprise to see him on the first lick of the Tasman Sea swell as it makes landfall in Fiji. The primary meat of the swell arrives tomorrow and it should pump all week. Photo courtesy of Stu Gibson up at Namotu Island, Fiji

As most shortboarders are about 16 inches tall, that wave must only be 3'.

Seeing Kelly without a jersy on helps remind me he is still human. Sort of
