This conversation led to a candid discussion about a recent incident during a competition in France. During this comp Kelly wiped out, hitting his head on his board knocking himself out cold. During the ensuing chaos Kelly was held down for two waves. Slater considers participation in this type of hold down the moment one becomes a true surfer, and it is interesting to hear him discuss it so candidly.
