About midway through Round 4 in the Billabong Tahiti Pro, Kelly Slater was getting towed back out to the lineup when this happened. A scary moment considering the shallow reef and a 400lbs waverunner could have made a Slater sandwich. Tthe water patrol should pull you out of danger, not put you back into it, so it's no wonder the former champ was a little rattled. Luckily Slater was able to walk away and finish the non elimination heat in 3rd place, and eventually made it to the final.
