Slater finished ahead of hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky and musician Huey Lewis, making waves in a totally different way. The iconic surfer has been a golf enthusiast for a number of years, finding similarities between golfing and surfing that make the former a natural second love.

With fewer than two weeks remaining until the start of the 2015 Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour season, it would appear Slater, who snagged a perfect 10 at this year's Volcom Pipe Pro, is doing more than just surfing to ready himself for the mental challenges of competition.
