One can only imagine the volume of trophies, memorabilia, and media Kelly Slater must have collected over some 30+ years of competitive surfing. Now he finally has a place to put all of it. Kelly’s latest real estate purchase reflects his financial successes with Outerknow, KS Wave Co, Kelly Slater Designs, Firewire, and whatever secret share he has of the WSL. Unlike the smaller condos and houses he keeps at key surf spots around the world; the Gold Coast, Pipeline, Malibu, and his home break at Cocoa Beach, this estate says, ‘Next Chapter”, or to use his own phrase: ‘Continuance‘.
The nearly 8000 square foot home has 7 bedroom and 8 baths and 100 feet of beachfront; plenty of room for the many friends and colleagues Kelly has gathered along the way. The home is an interesting mix of architectural elements, incorporating Polynesian ceilings, a variant of Chinese Chippendale elements, native Hawaiian hardwoods and other nods to Pacific Rim cultures.
In addition to open communal spaces, the estate features two guest houses. an infinity pool, screening room, zen garden, water features, and views for days. All at the bargain price of $7,800,000. (It really was a deal. It was originally listed at almost $10M).
