The days of early morning wave checks and disappointing “you should’ve been here yesterday” conversations are long gone for surfing legend Kelly Slater. The 11-time WSL Champ has created the ultimate, perfect peeling rights in a hidden Central California location.

Dubbed The Kelly Slater Wave Company, the manmade "Surf Ranch" wave combines cutting edge science, engineering and design to create the longest, rideable open-barrel in the world. Fullsuit or trunks, shortboard or fish, solo sesh or party wave—the conditions are always ideal.

GoPro was lucky enough to check out Kelly’s surfing mecca firsthand. Watch the legend in action here.
