Kelly Slater Wants Your Help Getting Relief to Hurricane Victims

Following the devastation caused by the recent hurricanes in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Puerto Rico and the United States, Kelly and the WSL have teamed up with Omaze once again to support Americares as they work alongside the local communities to restore health services in the regions affected. Fans can enter for the chance to spend the day with Kelly at the ranch for as little as $10 by donating at omaze.com/surfranch through November 14.

One grand-prize winner and their guest will be flown out to the WSL Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California to experience a day of perfect waves with Kelly Slater and his friends. They will get a private coaching session from one of the greatest surfers of all time and get to watch footage of their customized waves with Kelly in real time. Following all the waves, the winner and their guest can relax in the Surf Ranch hot tub before ending the night with a BBQ. Flights, transportation, and hotel accommodations will all be provided.
