In the Kelly Slater biography titled ‘Pipe Dreams’ printed in 2003, Slater responded when asked where he sees himself in 10 years, “…competing at Pipe against kids like John John Florence… he is only ten years old but already charging Pipe. When he is 20, I’ll be 40, and hopefully I will have a chance to surf against him.” Slater’s Hawaiian Pipe Dream came true in the 2013 Pipe final – almost exactly 10 years later.
