Surfing celebrities: the surfer and the rock star

Kelly Slater and Eddie Vedder and a few friends have spent a nice surfing day, at Makaha Beach, in Hawaii. The 10-time world surfing champion has enjoyed some pretty relaxed waves on the West side of Oahu, alongside with the Pearl Jam frontman.

The surf was small, but quite fun. The Floridian was playing around the traditional Hawaiian canoes that were also enjoying wave rides in Makaha Beach. After a few tries, Slater even got a lift from the outrigger canoe.

Eddie Vedder is known for his passion for surfing. The rock star surfing celebrity, a vegetarian, is very active in the surfing life, through environmental NGO's like The Surfrider Foundation. Vedder has other notable surf friends like Laird Hamilton and Jack Johnson.

In 1995, while surfing in New Zealand with Tim Finn, he was carried 250 feet off the coast and had to be rescued by coastal lifeguards. In 2005, the Pearl Jam musician was nearly lost at sea, having tried to paddle from Moloka'i to Oahu.
