Nine-time surfing world champion Kelly Slater, along with his brothers Sean and Skippy, was out in San Clemente this afternoon promoting skin cancer awareness.

The low-key event was put on by the World Skin Cancer Foundation,  founded by longtime friend of the Slaters' Drew Filliben.  

The event was supposed to feature an invitation-only surf contest with big-name surfers, but that portion of the day was nixed when no waves showed up.   

"It's freezing, and miserable, but everyone has a smile and is having a good time," said Sean Slater. "What can you
do?"
