CNN gets great insight from surfing’s great one.

Kelly Slater, less guarded than you’ve seen him.
It feels a little like Kelly Slater is getting closer to something he has rarely allowed himself through surfing’s most amazing career: Satisfaction. It’s always been win a contest or a title and then onto the next. But perhaps now, finally, he’s starting to allow himself more reflection on and pride in his past accomplishments. Or maybe not! But either way, here, he’s less guarded than you’re used to seeing him – for whatever reason, the champ always opens up more for the mainstream media than he does for the surfing media. In this CNN-produced profile spot, he talks about things you’ve rarely heard him speak about, including religion, his definition of success and more.
