And to bring WSL to Palm Beach, Florida!
If you could get your degree from Harvard or from Kelly Slater which would you choose? Oh sure, Harvard may be more prestigious and you could be all chummy with your natty bros then go get a respected internship, marry a blue blood, get a job in her father’s company, play tennis on the weekends, have kids, cheat with the nanny, get divorced, get hooked on pain pills, etc.
OR you could get your degree in BACKSIDE TOOB NO RAIL GRAB and be the envy of your beach.
The decision is more difficult than it seems no?
Kelly Slater’s backside toob no rail grab program will apparently be on offer at his new proposed Wave Ranch in Palm Beach, Florida. And let us read from Palm Beach’s local Sun-Sentinal:
More details are emerging on Surf Ranch Florida, a man-made surfing lake in Palm Beach County endorsed by surfing champion Kelly Slater.
County commissioners on Thursday unanimously approved plans for the county to evaluate the proposed surf school and make recommendations for approval later this summer.
During a presentation to the county, representatives of Surf Ranch Florida revealed the project would:
-offer an athletic training center for competitive surfers, a community surfing school, programs for underprivileged youth and a learning center.
-bring in an estimated 83,000 guests annually, and create hundreds of jobs.
-lure thousands of spectators for surfing competitions presented by the World Surf League, a governing body for professional surfers.
And there you have it. A surf school, a training center for underprivileged youth and bleachers to seat a mob starving for professional surfing. Rick Kane is fast becoming a reality. So is the idea of another Bud Tour.
