And the winner is JHawk of Mt. Pleasant, SC: "Bull riders claim the rodeo is 'the most dangerous eight seconds in sports,' but who cares? Kelly Slater knows there's no better way to spend eight seconds than ass-dragging his way through a perfect Fijian tube."
Honorable mention goes to Hobesoundsurf of Hobe Sound, FL: "'I don't normally drag ass... but when I do, it's in thick lefthanders'."
And Eddie Guilbeau of Melbourne Beach, FL: "Kelly keeps his composure as cameras capture clip after clip at Cloudbreak."
