Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Faszinierend ist die (Auto)-Biographie von Kelly Slater, dem 6-fachen Surfweltmeister, nicht nur für Surfer, sondern auch für solche, die einen Einblick in eine andere sportliche Wettkampfwelt bekommen möchten.
Slater beschreibt neben seinem Lebensweg, von seinen ersten Stehversuchen auf dem Brett, bis hin zu seinem letzten Weltmeistertitel, auch die ursprüngliche Einstellung zum Wellenreiten, die auch ein Profi-Surfer immernoch hat, wenn er den Sport wirklich liebt.
Interessant ist vor allem die große zwischenmenschliche Belastung, die zwischen Familie und Surfleben entsteht, da Slater oft wochenlang an den außergewöhnlichsten Spots der Welt unterwegs ist.
Doch vor allem die bis ins Detail beschrieben Empfindungen, welche Slater während der Wettkämpfe im Line-up gespürt hat, wenn es um die großen Titel oder auch die zwischen den jeweiligen Surfgenerationen bedeutenden Duelle ging ,machen die Biographie absolut lesenswert, auch wenn man sonst eher Abstand zu Biographien hält.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
..es war das erste Buch, was ich über das surfen gelesen habe und es war faszinierend. In seiner Autobiographie erzählt er auf sowohl witzige, als auch ernste Weise seine Geschichte von den Anfängen bis hin an die Spitze der Surfwelt. Dabei macht er auch keine Ausnahme bei den, durch das viele rumgereise entstehende, familiären Problemen.

Es geht um Freundschaften, Strände und Missgeschicke auf der langen Reise von Florida nach Hawaii....

Alles in allem ein wirklich gutes Buch, welches einem die Welt des surfens näher bringt.

Aus dem Leben eines Superstars der Sportwelt! Ehrlich und offen schildert Slater sein Leben, seine Erfolge und auch seine Fehler. Er spricht offen über seine gescheiterten Beziehungen, den Ehrgeiz und die besondere Beziehung zu Andy Irons. Für mich als Fan der Person hinter dem Sportler ein absolut empfehlenswertes Buch. Eine top Biographie, die nicht davor zurückschreckt auch die dunkleren Seiten zu zeigen.

Very Good 31. Juli 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I really enjoyed this book. The basic story of Slater's life is interesting, but his honesty about his feelings is what I enjoyed most. It's easy to think that guys who tackle huge waves never know a timid moment in their lives, but Slater's comments about his feeling timid against big surf, and feeling timid on dry land in the form of having a shy personality when he was a kid, were reassuring to someone like me who certainly has felt fear in the water and was a shy kid, too. (Slater was voted "best looking" at his high school, so in a way his shyness didn't MATTER, since girls came after HIM. I wish I'd lost my virginity as young as he did! But nonetheless, his honesty about his feelings are endearing and interesting.) And if you're a surf nut, just reading his take on approaches to surfing, his experiences with different breaks, and his evolvement as a surfer are interesting. Sometimes it feels like THE MATRIX where Neo/Slater blows it a lot during the learning process, but it's those mistakes that make for a rapid learning curve. P.S. Aug. 2, I had Kelly sign the book yesterday at the U.S. Open in Huntington Beach, after he introduced Tom Curren at the ceremony where Curren impressed his feet and hands in cement. I told Kelly I'd finished the book and liked it, and he said, "Thanks a lot," but seemed maybe a little disbelieving, since the book had only been published a couple days before. But I did read it in only a couple days...because it's a good read.

Pipe Dreams, may haunt you 11. Februar 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
For readers expecting the champ to keep pace with the ever-increasing quality of surf literature, you are in for a disappointment. The only conclusion I can come to is that this was written for pre-teens. I believe even they would be left wanting more. I felt as if I was reading a chronological timeline of surf contest results while sprinkled in were tidbits of interesting relational, or situational, anecdotes that were never developed or cut short. This man's story could have gone into so many interesting directions but one direction was never made clear. So why the three stars anyway? Because he has given us the first roughly hewn look into some personal experiences that shaped him.
All the raw paragraphs did expose the champ as someone less enviable, maybe a little less balanced out of the water, but with one internal drive: his competitive nature. Between these pages are the things he cares about most. We are witness to a man in development and someone still searching. This biography leaves the reader feeling they have received an unedited glimpse into Mr. Slater's life. An interesting segway that needs to be explored further is the story of the changing of the guard. I know that Kelly Slater was at the heart of a revolution in the way competitors viewed each other, as friends, as fellow artist and musicians, and as renaissance men. This revolution changed the face of surfing forever. I know because I have seen the difference in surf literature and films and in the water. Mr. Slater, thanks for the effort, but you still have more to offer us, in and out of the water.

a rogue read... 7. Juni 2006
Von A reader from Nor Cal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In all honesty, I didn't expect to enjoy this book. After all--what do I, a gal scientist, have in common with a surf legend who trumps his peers to float somewhere up there with Kwan, Woods, and Jordan?

Instead, I found myself unable to put it down. Well written and wonderfully candid, it promised everything that goes into a unforgettable biography--and then some.

Slater imbues his writing with gut-wrenching, broad-appeal emotion--a notable accomplishment in crafting a story around a sport and way of life not accessible to most of the world. By the end, I felt like I could play a round of golf or have a beer with Slater and relate to him on a level that surpasses lines of class and celebrity--one that is simply, human.

My only complaint? I would've liked captions for the photos.

I hated to say goodbye at the end. That should say it all.

Good, but where is the emotion? 11. Oktober 2004
Von Lorra Fae - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a novice surfer, and an obsessive one, I am in awe of people like Kelly Slater, and only wish I had grown up close to waves so maybe I could be a quarter of what he has become.

This book was really easy and interesting to read, and the only problem I have with it is that he didn't really touch on how surfing FELT.

I wanted to know...how did it feel, the first time he caught a wave? What is it really like to ride places like Pipe for the first time, or any time, other than scary? What is it like to be inside a barrel...etc etc.

I learned a lot about his competitive nature and his triumphs and shortcomings. The great parts of this book is when he is sharing feelings, not ratings.

Waiting for One More Wave 12. Juli 2008
Von Jim Muccio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Hurricane Bertha is kicking up swell in the middle of the Atlantic. It's already dark and I've just come back from watching about 40 surfers catch waves down at Sebastian inlet. I watched them all finish up their set and catch a final wave while they could still see the bodies of other surfers bobbing in front of them. As I walked back to the parking area along the top of the jetty I looked back into the surf and could barely make out one last guy in the water waiting for his last wave. Since there was only one guy left I fancied that it was Kelly Slater, trying to catch one more before going in. I would like to meet Kelly Slater, the man, the champion, the surfing legend. I just finished reading Pipe Dreams--a Surfer's Journey, a little late since it was published in 2003. Co-written by Slater and Jason Borte a surfer/writer/teacher from Virginia Beach, VA, it's a nice book, with quaint stories about Kelly's journey from grommet to manhood to world champion -- 6 times (the book stopped before his world title career continued). Unfortunately it does not read like the life of a world champion -- it is not a world class biography. It reads more like like it was written for his fan club -- with short anecdotal accounts of his formative years followed by even shorter accounts of the many repetitive competitions required to capture six world tour victories. Since Slater is in the upper stratosphere when it comes to his craft -- where only world class talent belongs -- his book should also have world class appeal -- sadly it does not. I lay the blame at the feet of his co-author and perhaps his editor. I don't know much about surfing, and I probably know even less about surfing after reading Pipe Dreams. This is a shame. Slater hints of a second book where he details some secrets to surfing. This would probably be a better story. That's not to say Slater's story shouldn't have world class appeal -- it has too -- the story just isn't told in this book. Kelly Slater is now an eight-time world champion -- that puts him in extremely rare company, dare I say Lance Armstrong. What you can barely glean from the narrative is that Kelly Slater is a deep introspective person -- hugely complex and sophisticated in his thoughts -- this is readily apparent in his life story yet you do not get this directly from the pages, you must read between the lines and theorize that there is way more to what we are being told -- I hope there is, otherwise Slater has lived a very shallow life. Perhaps a surfer's journey is shallow -- but I doubt it. This book is a must read for all surfers, young and old and at heart, so they can say they've read Slater's book, but it is no better than the the worst written TV shows or movies about surfers it criticizes. When a world class athlete decides to write a book, they have to go with world class help -- please Kelly -- for the sake of your fan's and for the sake of your profession, get some help with the next one. I'll be waiting for that wave. This one gets three stars because I finished it without too much trouble and the awesome cover jacket (which ironically is world class).
