THE KELLY VS. GABRIEL AND THE NON-INTERFERENCE

Gabriel, unquestionably, mashed down Kelly’s exit on a potential 10 point ride. Do you think it should have been deemed an interference?

Did Gabriel deserve the score on his final wave and was Kelly’s underscored?

DUKE

Lakey Peterson for her overshadowed, yet nonetheless incredible comeback story.

KOOK

Ronnie Blakey for constantly provoking Pete Mel in the commentary booth. Throughout the entire event Ronnie seemed to be jabbing Pete and it also seemed to keep Pete off kilter. Kinda odd. They are both usually super nice guys.

MUST-SEE MOMENT

Corey Wilson’s incredible capture of Owen Wright celebrating his win with his girlfriend Kita Alexander and their newborn child.

@owright so incredibly proud of you. Been through hell and back and now you are on top of the world.
