Kelly Slater's bank account got a big deposit after officially announcing that the WSL has purchased the Kelly Slater Wave Company. While financial details surrounding this acquisition were not immediately available, they are surely more than one ever needs to comfortably retire. This now means that the WSL & Kelly Slater Wave Co. are now sister companies within WSL Holdings.
There's so many things to discuss here that are super exciting. For starters, the amount of additional resources and funding that are going to be spent in the coming years to really dial in the technology and multiple wave pools around the world is staggering. There's no doubt that the WSL Championship Tour will soon have a stop at one of these locations as well. It's another tough hit for WaveGarden, who's yet to make a video or any promotional materials such as Kelly's wave. Or maybe people like the "Kelly Stamp of Approval". Last, it means Kelly Slater can get back to doing what he does best; winning world titles!
As for what he's planning on doing with the money from this acquisition, I'm hoping he sends a modest $1,000,000 my way! Cheers.
