On thursday, New Yorker Balaram Stack called an impromptu expression session in San Clemente. Slater responded via Twitter, saying he was down to play. But when Kel turned up at the spot, he turned his nose up.
It didn’t deter the younger cats though. As photog James ‘Jimmicane’ Wilson says, “A couple of the east coast families have a rental house right on the beach and a bunch of San Clemente groms showed up to all throw in $10 per person, winner takes all. The regular footers went out in the first elimination heat and the goofy footers went out after, then they had the final.
“Balaram ended up winning the thing with a frontside air reverse (pictured above) and narrowly defeated Ian Crane and Oliver Kurtz. He pocketed a clean $140 and spent all of it on beer. The gentlemanly thing to do.”
