One thing is for sure, he is not over 5'8.5". There is a good chance he is 173cm. It worked out all right for him, he is the undisputed king of surfing.

Saw him once IRL and we were pretty much eye to eye. I'm 5ft7 (170cm), I think he's a soft 5ft8 or a 5ft7 1/2 with great posture. We have the same proportions

Really not the best photo, but just something to add to reference, here he is next to under 5'8" Jeremy Piven (with that giant Armie Hammer, lol):

I think this is 5'8.5" is really close, so you've got this one right.

Spot on, looks about 2cm taller than Cameron Diaz barefoot. And he's living proof that with a strong face and good physique that chicks couldn't give a rats ass about the height of a guy, if anything in Kelly's case it probably makes him more attractive to them that he's nearer their height, "cute" as I think I recall Pamela Anderson once saying. Most pro surfers are under 6' but there are quite a lot of bigger surfers out and about even if not on the pro tour. And if they all walked into a night club, it would be Kelly getting most of the chicks, even if some of the guys looked like Laird Hamilton.

Ground is not uneven here. Looks exactly what Rob has listed him at next to Diaz who I suspect is just shy of 5'8".
