Michael Jordan. Wayne Gretzky. Kelly Slater.
These are some of the athletes who are regarded as the best of all time. Kelly Slater might not have the same recognition as the first two, but anyone who follows pro surfing will tell you that he's the best to ever ride a wave.
Slater, 50, is an elder statesman of the surfing world at this point. But he might just have a second act as a heartthrob for the TikTok generation. That's because, for whatever reason, Kelly Slater is trending big-time on TikTok right now.
