Yup, as soon as he impacts the scoring potential of the surfer with priority (in this case, Kelly), he's hit with an interference, and with the scores Kelly already had dropped, that would effectively end the heat as Parko wouldn't be able to get the necessary score with the interference penalty.

You are correct.. I have to check out the video to see what went down. There had to be more to it
