Slater last won in H.B. in 1996. He bested Aussie Yadin Nicol who barely registered a wave in the final due to a flawed strategy. Sally Fitzgibbons (Aus), 20 topped the ladies field. Brazillian unknown Felipe Toledo won the Jr.Open Men's and 16 year old Cali Girl Lakey Peterson won the Jr. Women's. See Kelly's winning waves in the vid. below.
