Surfing is no easy feat. When 11-time world champ Kelly Slater fell off his board during a barrel roll, fans were bummed to see him miss the trick. Then, the impossible happened.

Somehow, Slater managed to body roll back onto his board and finish the ride… In the middle of the tube. How insane is that?
Slater, upon seeing the footage, was even impressed with himself!
Well, that was interesting. I thought I just fell straight onto my belly and bodyboarded out. Didn’t realize I had to grab for it! Haha. Fun day. #Repost wsl

It’s still pretty shocking to see him somehow come out while still on his board! 46-years-old and still killing it.
