I was on the beach for this.
This was one of the first times we ever used a video screen grab/gif on surfermag.com.
" In a move that will no doubt be questioned all year, Slater and Beschen each began paddling for a right barely two minutes into the heat. With Slater on the inside, Beschen looked over to Kelly and evidently thought that the World Champ was not taking the wave. But Slater did take the wave, giving Beschen an interference and turning a nice ride, punctuated by an aerial, into Beschen's swan song. "
