I saw this grid of photos in the penthouse of the then-Waikiki Edition (now The Modern), and I don't know who the photographer is, sadly (if anyone knows I'd love to hear). But I've been sitting on the photos for awhile and the story behind is too good to let languish forever. Apparently, Kelly Slater was in a big comp and--if I remember correctly and the story I got was right-he said that if he won he'd celebrate by drinking a beer while riding in. And he did. Apologies for the glare on the photos, and apologies to the photographer, who I certainly hope to be able to credit soon.
