Had a great time that Friday for the finals.  Really bummed out I can't do it again. Lifetime memories that day.  I've been to s super bowl, olympics and world series and that day is right there with those events.  Sounds crazy but I had chills when Slater landed that huge air against Taj.  Unbelievable.

Not crazy at all - I talked about Slater landing that air right in front of all of us just today. "Chills" doesn't even do it justice.


Ahh..maybe one day the show comes back to town. Or maybe not. But this much is for certain: It came here once and it was spectacular - and they can never take that away from us.

If you want to relive some of the ups and downs of last year's event being cancelled and then back on check out this post from exactly a year ago today.

And SeaCliff, you are are right chills don't do seeing Kelly boost and land that air any justice. What an amazing sight to see from the beach!
