Rewatch: Kelly Slater Vs. John John Florence In Perfect Teahupo’o

As most of you may already know, the 2015 Billabong Pro Tahiti is set to start this Friday, and with a potential swell on the horizon, we could be jumping straight into some action. So to get ourselves prepared, and for the sake of watching mind-blowing surfing in unimaginably perfect waves, we figured it’d be appropriate to revisit last year’s superheat between Kelly Slater and John John Florence – the exact two people for whom you beg to watch in conditions like these. To no surprise, this Semifinal heat was one for the archives, with nonstop hay-makers being thrown throughout the entire thirty five minutes. In the end, Slater got the nod with a 19.77 total over John’s 19.30, but with scores like that could you really call either one of them a loser?
