Surfing legend Kelly Slater completed a mind-boggling wave despite falling off his board inside the barrel

World Surf League
  • Most mere mortals who have attempted to surf struggle just stand up on the board once, but surfing legend Kelly Slater is no mere mortal.
  • During Round Three of the 2018 Billabong Pipe Masters in Hawai’i, Slater was going head-to-head with Filipe Toledo when he was knocked off his board in the middle of a barrel.
  • Somehow, Slater was able to control his board and get back up while still inside the barrel.
  • Even Slater appeared to be awestruck by the move.
  • Slater has seen limited action over the last 18 months due to a series of foot injuries, including a gruesome broken foot that required surgery.

Here is the wave as shown live, but you will want to see the replay below:
