Kelly Slaters wave pool

“The wave’s perfect,” says Kelly Slater of his wavepool. “And it just keeps going around and around.” Sure, it’s still miniature, but here’s the first look at Kelly’s latest project.

In a CBS News feature, we’re given the first (limited) visions of the technology and the wave itself. Aside from the obvious Tiger Woods references, etc. the rest of the feature’s pretty decent – surfing footage, candid quotes from Kelly about his family and, in our opinion, the biggest highlight: When the reporter asks what Baywatch did for Kelly and he replies: “Ruined my street credibility.”
