Kelly Slater has formally dedicated the Manly-Freshwater World Surfing Reserve, the first of its kind in Australia and the third, right after Malibu (USA) and Ericeira (Portugal). “Australia has the world’s best beaches,” said Slater, the 11-time world surfing champion and World Surfing Reserves global ambassador. “You think of sacred as an empty beach somewhere where no one is, but then you think of the history of a place like Manly especially in the symbolic terms of surfing.” Slater posed at the ceremony with the original board that Hawaiian legend Duke Kahanamoku built and rode at Manly-Freshwater, back in 1914.
