Pro surfer Kelly Slater - considered by many to be the greatest of all time - has revealed that he has been vegan for a month.

According to the athlete, who has won the World Surf League Championship a record 11 times - he is 'feeling good' on the new regime.

Animal charity PETA says the star agreed to participate in its two-week vegan challenge earlier this year, and it seems that Slater has decided to stick with it.


The star took to Instagram stories to post about his lifestyle.

He wrote: "Been vegan nearly a month now. Feeling good.

"Much better digestion and variety of healthy foods eating this way."

This is not the first time Slater has spoken about veganism.

In a video last year, he revealed that he was 'working [his] way in the direction' of going plant-based, citing environmental and health benefits.

According to the surfing legend, he hasn't consumed milk for many years.

PETA says: "Those who follow him on Twitter and Instagram know that he’s long been opposed to consuming milk, cheese, and other animal-derived foods."
