    Less than an hour after I arrived into Mexico City, the earthquake hit. I was in an Uber, on the way from the airport to the B&B where my girlfriend was staying.

    It’s a secret as closely guarded as the crown jewels or the nuclear codes. A mystery that pales in comparison to Roswell, Stonehenge, or even the lost city of Atlantis. What is this highly-classified secret? Kelly Slater’s pre-surf smoothie recipe. What’s not a secret is that Kelly cares about what he’s putting into his body (and what he’s putting on his body).
