When Kelly Slater unveiled his own secret man-made wave at the end of last year, the internet went into meltdown. The chances are that when you saw it you went through three distinct stages of emotion. Stage one you would have watched open mouthed in stunned disbelief, stage two you would have felt a rush of jealously and stage three you would have been swamped with the desire to have a go on what is undoubtedly the finest man made wave on the planet. Well now Kelly is giving you the chance to win the opportunity for you and a pal to spend two days surfing with him at his secret surf ranch in California.
The competition is being run in conjunction with Omaze and all entries will raise vital funds for WSL PURE, the philanthropic arm of the World Surf League, which is dedicated to improving the health of the planets oceans. Donations start from just $10 for 100 entries into the competition, and there are many other levels of donations that attract increased entries and various prizes including autographed boards, a Kelly Slater playlist or VIP access at Pipe Masters.
The winner will not only enjoy two days hanging out with Kelly at his surf ranch, they will also be allowed to invite a friend and the prize includes flights, accommodation and food. Kelly is also promising après surf, jam sessions around a bonfire and on his Instagram page has even said the winner can put in a request for which surfers they would like to share the session with and he will try to organise it. Not bad for a mere $10 entry eh?
