Does anyone have a source for this? I've heard it before, but sounds a bit implausible to me. Where did he get his undergrad from?

If I'm wrong I'll bite myself in the butt, there are pages and pages of references to it, sorry if it's incorrect. It's not implausible and he's a smart guy. Heck, Shaq got his PhD.

I was striving to give you the benefit of the doubt in regards to what seemed your ignorance and stupidity.

I cannot strive any longer.

You have proven to be retarded.

Put the pipe down and read a book. It will do you good. I promise.


The constant misdirection or "red herring" type of responses in this place by those who do not want to open their minds to the real subject is absolutely f*cking zany.

The whole idea of a masters degree in criminal law is confusing. Slater definitely doesn't have a law degree. Someone continuing legal studies is typically pursuing an LLM, which really isn't the same as a masters degree. Not saying it isn't possible, just odd.

Have not vetted the interviewer however as articulate, thoughtful and intelligent Kelly appears to be your assertion is vetoed.

I reserve the right to change my standing after a bit of vetting but I'm leaning towards being accurate.

Peas brudda~~

Kelly has openly denied he has a degree from "Sydney University" or any other school. I think this was confirmed not that long ago by Warshaw somewhere too. Shaq went to LSU and finished his degree. Kelly didn't go to college and there's no such thing as Sydney University (there is a University of Sydney, however).

And based on this interview, the idea that he's a smart guy is still open for discussion.


Bock you

Was the degree from an Australian university? monkey








(Being of mixed citizenship, I am allowed to tease....but honestly, does he have a university degree?)

You can get an online degree with some good focused effort these days.

That being said this is the 1st time I've ever heard of this.

Slater is not your typical surfer or professional surfer.

It takes constant and never ending discipline and focus to keep his body in the state that allows him to be arguably the best surfer in the world for such a long stretch and at his age which is quite young for all intents. No coincidence there.

He's not some dumb gym rat either. It takes education and intelligence to have an extended career. Take a look at Tiger Woods. Amazing golfer but he wore his body down. Dude is kinda buff too but tens of thousands of hard golf swings can wreak havoc on the physique. He could have done it differently IMO. I am rooting for his comeback. The dude is a legend. Have you guys seen the physiques of the top golfers lately? Complete and total change from 10-20 years ago. Today these top guys have been in the gym, no denying.

I'm kinda seeing a lot of what would seem to be the typical dumb stoned surfer type shiet around these parts lately.

Stupid iz as stupid doez I guess?

Say it ain't so violin

I did a quick google search, and did not find any annotated articles stating he had a law degree. All I found were a couple of junk "10 things you didn't know about Kelly..." and a few, obviously secondhand, bio's. I also didn't see any thing mentioned about undergrad work. If he really had a law degree, you would think that there would be some chatter about his BA or BS, or even alma mater.

My bad, and all I could find besides those "10 things" pages was this pic which appears to be a photoshop. Carry on ban
