Pro surfer Kelly Slater is working with Quiksilver to develop his own clothing line. He tells the Telegraph: "I'm not going to come up with some John Daly-style pants, but I have been working on a line with Quiksilver. My input with the clothes is more about a lifestyle and a philosophy rather than me actually trying to style or design them. We're looking at organic and eco fabrics—mainly for travelling clothes, which is something I know a little about. When it comes to style, my style is not to worry about it. As a surfer I'm happy keeping it clean and casual." [Telegraph]
