A flurry of action in the last minute sees spartan warrior, Michel Bourez, come out on top.  A low scoring final, and strange, but Michel outlasts.

Here I am!  Michel playing a bit of peekaboo with the crowd.

Kelly greets Michel on the beach, and says, “I can’t believe you let him go on that last wave,” referencing Michel choosing to not exercise his priority, letting Kanoa have one last stab at the lead.   Kelly went on to say, “I wanted Kanoa to win…because he beat me, but, I also wanted you to win.”

That’s messing with my mind, and I’m not even there…or surfing…or Michel or Kelly or Kanoa.  What?

Kanoa the Undertaker

Igarashi snags a beauty with less than a minute.  Is it enough to take down Kelly?


Yes.  Oh, yes it is.

Moments before, Kelly, risking body and mind, hurled himself into this death slab.

With Slater’s exit, John John is your 2k16 Triple Crown champion.  In the post-heat interview Kelly tells Rosie Hodge that he’s pulling for Kanoa to win it all.  The rookie will meet Spartan warrior, Michel Bourez.
