Watch John John Florence and Kelly Slater Discuss Their Billabong Pro Tahiti Face-off

In arguably the best contest conditions of all time, Nixon surfer John John Florence faced off against Kelly Slater. The insane round of surfing ended in historic fashion, as it only could have, with John John catching a BOMB in the dying seconds that tied his total score with Kelly. Unfortunately this meant that the heat would be decided by each surfers highest single wave score in the heat and Slater's perfect ten bested John.

Controversial? Sure. One of the best heats of surfing we've ever seen? Definitely.

Watch above as Hurley's #tournotes caught John John Florence and Kelly Slater candidly discussing the heat.
