There is something about the heroes of sport that makes them seem so untouchable. It is tough to go beyond the sculpted individuals that you only see in film parts. I would say Rob Machado and Kelly Slater classify as these personas, titans of both competitive and free-surfing, which is why this video from the Inertia is pure perfection.
Kelly and Rob talk candidly about their childhood, family, and above all staying humble. The last is so important, and you can tell that their respective parents did a lot to drive this message home.
