In Pipe Dreams, Slater offers a breathtaking, adrenaline-soaked ride through a churning Pipeline tube. He pays tribute to close friends who lost their lives surfing and tells what life on the World Tour is really like, from schmoozing with celebrities to running from stalker fans to the competition and hanging out with the world's most famous surfers -- including Tom Curren, Tom Carroll, Gary Elkerton, Mark Occhilupo, Rob Machado, and Shane Dorian. Slater also describes his experiences in and out of the public eye, from his stint as a regular on Baywatch to his romance with Pamela Anderson to briefly retiring from surfing and then heading back out into the glory and danger of the waves. Pipe Dreams offers unprecedented access to the globetrotting lifestyle and the rarely seen private life of the man who destroyed every record in the sport. Slater holds nothing back, because after six world titles, he has nothing left to prove -- not to himself or to anyone else.
