Igarashi Takes Down Slater With Buzzer-Beater Barrel

Dec 19, 2016

Coming off a huge Quarterfinal win where he sealed Zeke Lau's Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour destiny, Kanoa Igarashi's heroic Pipe Masters run seemed to be ending in the Semifinals. With just a minute remaining, Kelly Slater had the rookie against the ropes needing a solid 8.33 to take the win. But when a clean Backdoor teepee swung his way in the dying seconds, Igarashi took full advantage. His massive 8.83 on this wave pushed him through to the Finals.
