What chance do mere mortals have against the great man-fish, Kelly Slater?

That’s a rhetorical question of course, because, right now, the answer is flat-out “none!”

Even the Hawaiian sea creatures are on his side, turning out to show their support, as seen in this shot by Peter Wilson, of a stingray cheering the World Champ on at the end of his winning ride in the Pipe Masters.

It’s all getting too weird…
