An HBO special on Kelly Slater, the undisputed greatest surfer of all time, has been nominated for four Sports Emmy Awards.
HBO documented the 11x World Champion's preparations for the season finale on the North Shore of Oahu, and the beginning of his run at the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, which Slater went on to win it for the first time in his 29 years on Tour.
Slater is the oldest and youngest World Champion in history, with a collection of 55 Championship Tour wins.
In the special, Slater talks through his relentless competitive drive, the ups and downs of his career, and his dream of winning the Billabong Pipe Masters, the crown jewel of the Triple Crown, just one last time.
"If I could win the Pipe Masters this year, and if it was the last contest I ever won in my career, I would die a happy man." Slater reveals.
The HBO Sports production "24/7: Kelly Slater" received four Sports Emmy Award Nominations including:
- Outstanding Edited Sports Special or Series
- Outstanding Camera Work
- Outstanding Editing - Long Form
- The Dick Schaap Outstanding Writing Award
HBO Sports received 16 total Sports Emmy® Award nominations for the 41st Annual Sports Emmy Awards. Date and details of the award ceremony will be announced at a later date.
