Kelly Slater joins ‘Surfing for Peace’ and ‘One Voice’ in Israel

Kelly Slater in israel

Eight-time world champion Kelly Slater tested the Mediterranean waters Friday in a visit to promote Israeli-Palestinian peace. Slater, of Syrian descent, was visiting Israel for three days to join activities of the groups “Surfing for Peace” and “One Voice.”

An 86-year-old Jewish member of Surfing for Peace, Dorian Paskowitz, asked Slater to come to Israel to promote the group’s efforts to bring Israelis and Palestinians together through the sport, said his son, David. “My father asked him if he was ready to be not only great surfer but a great man as well,” David Paskowitz said.

Slater as surfing Hilton beach on Wednesday and sang with a local band at a Tel Aviv beach concert on Friday.
