Slater's 8.93 No-Foot Alley Oop

| posted on April 09, 2010

Just in case anyone ever forgot that Slater is as progressive of a surfer as anyone on tour, he stuck this near-full rotation alley oop in the final to set the pace for his win over Fanning yesterday at the Bells event…with a busted foot.

    Watch closely and slow the tape. I don’t think he stuck it.

    Kelly is is on a different planet than all his competitors and everyone else.

    Dan: please explain that dumb ass comment? instead of writing some bullsh*t & not backing it up.

  • ant

    ridicu;ous score for falling off then getting back up agian…

  • Duhh

    If you fall off your board and don’t get up you fall. He got back up which equals a good score. Obviously you dont know competition scoring.

  • GH

    to pull a move like that in a final is phenomenal. Freak.

  • Double Duhh Says

    Ask Mick whether he pulled it? Ding-dong, there goes the bell….

    dan, you´re an asshole. . . send to surfermag a video of you doing that move… please

  • PJ

    Incredible (and clearly “made it”). Slater is still the best all around surfer on the planet.

    Please explain how he didn’t pull off the move??? I have watched the clip 2 times and I am still wondering how he “didn’t” complete the manuever????

  • mark

    @dan if he didn’t make it then why is he standing at the end…
    @ant not really sure you understand surfing…

    slater is still schooling all the youngsters in progressive surfing

    look at the scores for aerials that are pulled off in heats in every pro comp … .

    Watch how he looses the board and the nose drops into the wave which pushes the board back to feet!
