At only 15 years old, Slater has everything in place to become one of Hawaii’s elite watermen. Unfazed and immensely talented, he is already competing with world-leading Stand Up Paddlers twice his age. Slater is the youngest person ever invited to prestigious Stand Up competitions like the Kuikaika Big Wave, Gerry Lopez Rainbow Sandal, as well as Duke’s Ocean Fest where he’s claimed three championship titles. Did we mention he’s only 15 years old? Slater is an honor roll student, and a young, fierce ambassador for the future of surfing/SUP competition. Originally from Florida, he now calls Maui his home.
