Should Kelly Slater fear for his safety on the North Shore? Joel Tudor says yes!
As always, there is nothing like a keyboard party hosted by Kelly Slater and Joel Tudor to kick off a new year.
Yesterday, Kelly made a nice Instagram post titled, “Don’t tell anyone how good the left is at V-Land.” The gag being, the left off that very localised, almost entirely righthand wave a mile or so north of Sunset, puts the rider onto a difficult part of the reef.
Joel, who is a longboarder and jiujitsu aficionado and who’d previously gone after Kelly for wearing the wrong belt while grappling, responded by calling Kelly a “dork”, writing, “Way to tell a million people in one post.”
Today, in spite of the clip’s filmer Peter King claiming it wasn’t V-Land at all, Kelly removed the name of the wave from the title of his post.
Joel Tudor wrote to BeachGrit and, after a little fun roasting us as “girls” said, “(Kelly) changed the name for his own safety out here.”
Kelly, however, remained relatively defiant in his own comments pane despite the cosmetic capitulation.
Yago Dora writes, “I don’t even look right.”
Kelly replied, “Well, now you shouldn’t look left. Secret.”
