If you’re a surf fan then you will remember Shane Beschen. He had a big rivalry with Kelly Slater through the mid 90’s, won multiple World Tour events, came close to winning world titles and was the first surfer to surf a perfect heat (3 x 10 point rides in the 1996 Billabong Pro at Kirra). Shane was also a huge voice in pushing for surfing to become more innovative like both snowboarding and skateboarding.
