Offseason Snowboarding at Snowflex's Artificial Mountain

By Rick Bickerstaff

A friend and I were on a trip to Lynchburg, Virginia recently, when one of our friends got us free tickets to a year round ski and snowboard mountain called the Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre. The "mountain" is made of a synthetic material that looks and feels like rigid carpet, developed in the UK by Briton Engineering Developments that allows riders to hone their skiing and snowboarding skills in and out of season.  We were both skeptical as to how "carpet boarding" would treat us, but the results were an unexpectedly fun night of riding.

Best Heat Ever? Kelly Slater v. John John Florence Semifinal at the Billabong Pro Tahiti

John John Florence and Kelly Slater squared off in the semifinal of the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti in what people in the surf industry are calling one of the best, if not the best, heat ever.  The two surfers traded huge, barreling waves at Teahupoo in an epic session.  In fact, Kelly and John John ended up in a dead heat - tied at 19.77 - but Kelly advanced to the finals because of his higher individual wave score, a perfect 10.

Kelly's 2 waves were scored a 10 and a 9.77. John John's 2 waves were scored a 9.90 and a 9.87.

Some might question whether Kelly got a "former champ score boost" on his 10 wave, or at least that John John deserved a 10 also.  Regardless, it was an epic heat from two awesome surfers in incredible conditions.
