"Everyone has to realise it’s an incomplete manoeuvre".
Every armchair critic, blogger and surfer has had an opinion about that air from Kelly Slater in round 5 at the Trestles Hurley Pro. Mainstream media even chimed in, lambasting the judges for the 4.17 despite the huge reaction it received from the public. Indeed it was critical, impossible and damn right freakish - all of what we've come to expect from the 43 year-old, 11-time world champion. Finally the WSL have sat down with Kelly, Commentator Ross Williams and WSL Head Judge Richie Porta to get the final word as they break down the judging criteria and give a blow-by-blow account of the move that rocked the world.
