    Cool Kelly slater's air in the Final

    Did anybody else see that?

    That has to be the biggest air I have ever seen somebody land.

    That was a crazy final..I think the judges favored Fanning.

    watching live 2:30 am it was crazy to see how much Kelly was bugging out. Mcfanning comboed him, and had the crowd cheering, and Kelly was wiping out on majority of his waves. when he did that air it was an all or nothing scenario just like New york. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Hclu...layer_embedded for those that missed it

    Mick caught the bigger waves and on his scoring waves pulled three turns on the Bells Bowl where most people were getting two. He also had a flow to his surfing that Kelly didn't have. Though I think Kelly's air should have scored a 15 on level of difficulty and execution. On Kelly's 8.07 wave with the carving 360, if he didn't get caught up in the lip while doing that maneuver, I think he would have scored in the 9 range and won the final.

    slater i feel was robbed. either way, surfing at that level at his age, wouldnt be surprised if he won the title again this year with the way he is surfing.
