Campaign: Kelly Slater
Hometown: Encinitas, CA
EXPERIENCE DATE: November 2016
HERE’S HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN:
Rob took his buddy Ivan to Central CA to be some of the first people to surf Kelly Slater’s legendary man-made wave… then unwind in a hot tub with some beers. Dream day! To hear more and watch this epic day unfold, check out the video.
Kelly treated us like family, which is pretty incredible for an 11-time champion.

FUN FACTS ABOUT ROB
Meet Rob! He loves surfing but isn’t a fan or snorkeling or diving. His wife Pamela, 2-year-old daughter Hayden and 4-year-old chocolate lab Kingston are his life. He’s a 3rd generation Los Angeles native and has lived in San Diego since 2001. He loves the Dodgers but, in his words, “LA traffic is a nightmare and the surf kinda sucks up there.” Well, you’re welcome to visit Omaze’s LA office anytime, Rob!
