In a break from burying other peoples' good news (eg DeSouzie's 2015 world title) with a mind-boggling Slater Wave Pool clip, Slater has dropped a wicked pov clip with GoPro after a week of controversy following his comments calling for a shark cull in Reunion Island.

While it's hardly Thatcher announcing no more free school milk on the same day the Falklands War broke out in terms of news burying, it's either a mere coincidence / a fantastic bit of PR strategy.

Whatever. The wave looks fun as fook, from any which angle. Unless of course, you're anti wave pool.

And if you happen to be both anti-wave pool and anti-cull, Slates probably aint the surfer for you right now.
