Therefore, in today’s post, we will talk about the best surfers in all history. So if you are a fan of surfing or you’re just starting with this water sport, keep reading!

The best surfers in the world

Kelly Slater, Florida

Maybe you recognize him simply by Slater or “Slats”. He’s the surfer who has won the most number of world championships!

He was born in the United States and is one of the most iconic surfing legends: he has won the world championship more than 11 times! In addition, he won 4 national titles in the United States before qualifying for professional surfing and 6 Eastern Surfing Association titles.

In 2008 in Spain, he won the world title in the Billabong Pro Mundaka, in this way he managed to establish himself as the best surfer in all history!

His great career led him to television in the famous Baywatch series where he acted for eight episodes and also appears in an episode of the reality show The Girls Next Door, while the image of him is found in many movies related to surfing.

Stephanie Gilmore, Australia

One of the most prominent legends of female surfing is Stephanie Gilmore: in 2010 she was included in the Surfing Hall of Fame at just 22 years old and she’s number 1 in professional surfing!

At age 10 she won the Junior title of New South Wales (2003), in 2009 she won three important events that allowed her to obtain her third consecutive world title and in the ASP World Tour was a winner seven times. She also stands out for her position as the best athlete for ESPN ESPY in the years 2011 and 2013.

One trait that we find interesting to highlight about this great competitor is her ability to recover and continue fighting for her dreams, since on December 27, 2010, after signing a millionaire contract with Quiksilver Pro, she was attacked with an iron bar and suffered an injury.

But, surprisingly, that situation didn’t stop her and in 2012 she won the world title again, while in 2013 she suffered considerable injuries again, leaving her in fifth place but in 2014 she achieved a unique 10 in the final of the Swatch Women’s Pro achieving another world title!

‘John John’ Florence, ​​Hawaii

‘John John’ Florence was destined to practice this sport, he’s considered by many to be the best surfer in the entire world! He was born and raised in Hawaii, he grew up in a house across the street from the Banzai Pipeline, a world-famous breaker for its big, perfect tube waves.

His mother is also a surfer, so ‘John John’ Florence first got on a board when he was six months old and was already surfing alone at the age of five! Impressive, right?

He has won two World Surf League (WSL) world titles and he was qualified to represent the United States at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Carissa Moore, Hawaii

A four-time world champion, Carissa Moore has been on the podium in 9 of the last 10 years. But the merit of it is even greater. Carissa Moore had to compete in a very difficult time since she had to face Australians Tyler Wright and Stephanie Gilmore. Moore, Wright, and Gilmore have been dividing up the world championships since 2007!

In addition to being one of the best surfers in the world, she’s also one of the most influential, being named “Adventurer of the Year” by National Geographic, “Woman of the Year” by Glamour, and several times “Top Female Surfer” in the survey of Surfer.

“I want to send a message of love for surfing. I feel very lucky to be able to do what I like, but I have also gone through many challenges ”, said Carissa, who qualified for the debut of surfing at the Olympic Games in 2020.

Gabriel Medina, Brasil

He began his sports practice when he was only 9 years old. At 11 years old, he obtained his first Brazilian national championship title, and then, he became champion of the Volcom Sub-14 circuits, Quiksilver King of Groms, Rip Curl Grom Search, and Paulista Three-time Champion!

Gabriel Medina was world champion in 2014, and in 2018 repeated that feat with the surfing maneuver “backflip somersault”.

Among the great surfers of Brazilian origin, you will find Gabriel Medina with unsurpassed scores. For example, he was the first from his country to win a stage on the Gold Coast Australia and also the longest to top the world rankings in the entire history of surfing.

Tyler Wright, Australia 

Two-time world champion, Tyler Wright also belongs to a family of wave trainers, but this time from Australia. Her brothers Owen and Mikey are also very successful professional surfers.

In 2008, Tyler Wright became the youngest surfer to win a Championship Tour event, at just 14 years old. After two tight runner-ups in 2013 and 2014, she was finally able to claim the WSL title in 2016, a feat she repeated the following year.

Sally Fitzgibbons, Australia

Stephanie Gilmore, Carissa Moore, and Tyler Wright are the trio wonders of the current generation of surfers. However, none of them are unbeatable.

Sally Fitzgibbons has had no problem beating either of them, a feat she accomplished on several occasions; her problem has been to beat all of them at the same time.

She always found one of them willing to take the Women’s Championship Tour world title from her and for that simple reason she hasn’t yet been able to win it. Anyway, Sally Fitzgibbons was qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. 


Do you know any popular surfers who don’t appear on the list? Surely yes! Tell us about her or him! 😉
