Synopsis

From Beach Blanket Bingo to Baywatch, surfing has fascinated people for years, and Kelly Slater is the sport's newest star. He's one of the world's most popular surfers; his radical moves have revolutionized the sport. Born in Cocoa Beach, Florida, in 1972, he found surfing to be a great way to escape problems at home. When he was eleven, his parents divorced. Slater and his brother, Sean, were raised by their suddenly single mother, who struggled to support two young sons. After Slater's surfing career took off, he made the transition into acting and modeling. He spent a season starring on the popular television show Baywatch, where he won the hearts of women young and old-including Pamela Anderson, who he dated for about a year. He has also been featured in Versace ads. Slater has ridden the waves of the surfing world and experienced all of its ups and downs. He stayed focused on surfing during the difficult years of his life and has watched - and helped - the sport change through the years. In Pipe Dreams, he shares the stories that have influenced his life and have inspired him to overcome both personal and professional hurdles-and achieve his dreams

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.

A behind-the-scenes book on the tribulations of life 14. September 2004
Von Dennis A. Amith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I remember as a grommet and my idols were Tom Curren and I liked the style of Martin Potter but there was a guy, my age who was really kicking butt in surfing in the amateurs, named Kelly Slater. I remember during a surf comp in France, he was against his idol, Tom Curren and Slater won. There was a lot of talk about him but you knew inside this kid from Cocoa Beach was going somewhere. He is multi-talented but during his interviews...print or on television, you kind of see something through his eyes. Stoke when he wins a comp. But I don't know...you sensed somethings at times that you wonder how life is going for Kelly Slater. "Pipe Dreams: A Surfer's Journey" was so captivating that I couldn't even put the book down. This book is not a how-to-surf book. It's about the life of Kelly Slater and he talks about personal things that occured in his life that I must say...it takes a lot of courage and probably is therapeutic in a way to get everything out into the open for him. From his childhood, his father leaving his family and getting involved with alcoholism, insight on competitions and what was on his mind and how he actually gets pissed off (which I really couldn't imagine because he seems always calm) if he's losing a match. He also talks about his relationships with Bree (if you read any of the surf mags...you always saw a photo of them together) and the problems with that relationship as well as with Pamela Anderson and others. Also, the "Baywatch" situation and how Kelly and his co-star David Charvet got into a fight because Kelly didn't like being on the show and that was interesting. How he amassed a lot of money early on in his surfing career and then blew it all and it took a hard realization to manage it. Also, about that French stalker woman and how he almost got jumped by several guys. How he wanted to be like Tom and leave his sponsor to be soul surfer. His reunion with his father and him being a father which he kept secret from the public for two years and so much in this book that you start to learn more about Kelly Slater. Like many sports icons, you tend to see the good things. With Slater, I thought...champion, dates fine women, on the cool magazines and in the spotlight....what a life? But when you read the book, you realize that Slater really never asked to be a star, he just wanted to surf and the things that went on with his life, like most celebrities or sports icons, they can manifest to something negative but he was able to stay right in between, he never goes into a ....I'm doing so well with my life but that he made some f-up's along the way and he's making sure that he doesn't do again (or try to anyway) and continues to improve himself and try to make better decisions after learning from difficult and heartbreaking decisions. After reading this book, I respect him so much more. This book is absolutely wonderful!
