He's 38 year old surfer by the name of Kelly Slater. And i'm related to him.
Seriously. Not by 6 degrees of separation or anything like that, but by a direct family connection!
My brother (1) married a wonderful girl named Madeline Slater (2). Her father's brother had a child who just unlikely so happens to be the father of Kelly Slater. This makes Kelly Slater - Mady's cousin (3). They grew up together, and wouldn't you know it, Mady's one hell of a boogie-boarder too.
In addition to being the best athlete, he also did a stint with Pamela Anderson, which i must say is quite impressive as well.
So here's to me being a mere three hops away from being the BEST ATHLETE IN THE WORD!
