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.

..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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How the Most Dominant Athlete Got There 4. September 2015
Von daniel Schier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Finally picked up this book. If you're a fan of the sport and want insight into who Kelly is and how he's achieved so much (up to 2003), then you'll enjoy this book. Contrary to another reviewer who didn't like the chronological approach to this book, I found it fascinating to go back in time and reflect on reoccurring contests and how the results affected his ever-changing strategies - along with the insights gained through (seemingly uncorrelated) experiences that broke up his annual patterns. I'm his age and have been following the sport about as long as he took hold. So to hear his perspective and accounts of familiar personalities, events and stories was basically a page-turner for me. There are a few laugh out loud moments, and a stalker story that was pretty intense. I was a little demystified by his trajectory after reading his book; yet it also gave me a better appreciation for how he has risen, and the fact that it's actually attainable - especially after he writes his book about how to improve your surfing and competitiveness. I'll bet some of his current competition who've read this book have an edge now because of how much he shared. Finally, It's also a good (cautionary) tale for younger readers about the ups and downs of someone reaching great heights.
5.0 von 5 Sternen If you like Slater, you'll like this book 17. Januar 2016
Von Kristian Russell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I’ve owned this book for a few years but I never got around to read it until now. And boy, did I learn a few things about Slater and his life. Slater doesn’t give you the cookie cutter responses you would find in other autobiographies. He’s a blunt person, he always has been. That’s why this book is not like other surfing books. Many people have suggested that this book is just Slater's "résumé", or that this book shows that he's a douche bag. I get why people would sense that, but this book is all Slater. If you go watch ANY of Slater's interviews you'll see just how blunt of a person he is. He's always brash and he doesn't hold back his opinions. So what if he seems a little pretentious, it's Kelly Slater. He's always acted like that. If you didn't know that before picking up this book, then let's be honest, you definitely didn't know who Slater was.

Overall it's a great book and it gives you a peek inside of the mysterious Slater's life.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Mostly a History of Slater's Competitive Carear 30. Juli 2015
Von Michael T - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As a fan of Slater I found the story engaging. The writing is nothing special. It doesn't go into a lot of depth about other aspects of his life beyond competition, but I expect that to have the kind of competitive success that he did, that had to be the sole focus of his life. As he says, he used surfing as a focus to get his mind off of other aspects of his life that were hard, especially when he was growing up. This a document of how a champion achieved his goals. Somehow after reading his story I felt less envious of his life than I did before.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A behind-the-scenes book on the tribulations of life 14. September 2004
Von [KNDY] 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!

5.0 von 5 Sternen 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.
