♪ We had a lot of friction between us. I think there were some fights and things that happened behind the scenes that people don't know about. ♪ I started believing what I was reading. I started getting into the character. ♪ I still have a lot of people like pulling for me, but I have a lot of people, like, with a voodoo doll out. ♪ There was a time where I literally would go to sleep at night thinking of ways to punch him in the face. ♪ Rivalries exist in every sport known to man. Since the earliest days of athletes competing in games of skill and daring, individuals have risen through the ranks and placed themselves at the pinnacle of their sport. In the end of these contests, sometimes brutal in form, one man would stand on the apex with the competition flailing below him. But just as every champion rises, there will always be a contender with his sights set on taking down all adversaries and claiming his spot at the top of the field. For every Spartacus, there is a hungry gladiator with sharpened sword and fierce, determined heart. Surfing, like all warrior games, had been forever ripe with fierce rivalries, but in 1998, when a young and ravenous competitor named Andy Irons got called up to the big leagues, which was being dominated by five-time world champion and unstoppable force Kelly Slater, the battle had only just begun, and surfing's greatest rivalry was born. ♪ People don't get pushed by nothing. You know, competitively in sports and stuff, you get to see what people are made of when they really get pushed, their back to the wall, and when somebody fills that space two people can't, that's when tension happens. I remember saying a couple things to him, like, "You know, you're not in your backyard anymore." He said something like, "You know, this ain't Kauai either." You know, stuff he'd said, stuff I'd said, it was just to the point where I literally wanted to go and get physical. ♪ The first time I met Kelly was at the Surf Expo show in Orlando. There was this kid who was very dark-skinned, and his eyes just lit up, and they were very focused and intense, and, you know, he talked about surfing and winning contests and becoming a pro and all these things, we're looking at him, "Yeah, right, that's what everybody's dream is. Sure, kid." And we heard, you know, this kid was really the real deal, and maybe the next coming of Tom Curren. Growing up in Florida, you don't take surf for granted. Surfing really small waves all the time really teaches you how to read waves better than some guys would be able to read 'em coming from somewhere else because, you know, trying to analyze a one-foot wave versus always surfing five-foot waves and bigger, I think you really got to pay attention to what a wave's doing, and I think that's helped Kelly, too. ♪ I mean honestly, since he was little, everybody already knew, you know, that he was gonna be something big, but when he actually, like, busted onto the scene for me was at the contest at Lowers. ♪ Got this sinking feeling I sank with the tulip ♪ ♪ There ain't no habit that I would not defend ♪ ♪ Let's come back, well, I don't resend ♪ ♪ And I'm broken house, break you, you on the mend ♪ ♪ When you ♪ He just really had a polished, incredible act that just was unbeatable at that point, he was so good, and he definitely stamped his place on the surfing world. ♪ It's ever beginning, that's a duel to the end ♪ That's when it kind of separated him and put him on the map as this kid's not just a Floridian, not just an East Coaster, but he's one of the best coming out right now from the U.S. The pressure that probably mounted and built within Kelly himself to sustain and hold that position as a dominant amateur surfer, it's almost unbearable. A lot of people said, "Oh, yeah, he's had too much contests, too much this..." The other thing was, "Oh, he can't surf big waves." You know, blah-blah-blah. ♪ I do believe ♪ ♪ I'm in you ♪ ♪ You're on me ♪ ♪ Easy ♪ He was wide-eyed, and, you know, just astounded at Hawaii and probably blown away at the waves, the power, the size, the crowds, the intensity in the water, all that kind of stuff, but from what I understand, he adapted pretty quickly, and he did fine. I don't recall any time there ever being like a slowdown and transition from amateur to pro. He pretty much just, you know, kept climbing. ♪ It's pretty safe to say I would have thought he would achieve a world title, but I wouldn't have forecasted the success he's had to the magnitude that he's had. ♪ Still to this day, I have not seen another Kelly Slater. ♪

♪ Kauai is such an incredible place for waves, where Andy lives, you know, in Hanalei where he grew up. He kind of came from nothing. He didn't come from a lot of money and wealth, he didn't have a lot of money to travel, yet he was in the perfect place to become what he is, you know, with the waves that he had, he surfed every day. His whole surfing revolves around instinct, and I think he was able to surf these incredible reef breaks, and also that the little competitive zone down in Pine Trees. ♪ This beach break out here is the best training ground on the planet, probably. You know, the boys had that since they were nine, ten years old. ♪ They were so ultra competitive as brothers that there's no doubt in my mind that their growing up together helped shaped them into the surfers, the dynamic surfers they are today. And all of a sudden, Andy grew and he got real gawky and gangly. Didn't look right. You know, he was scrawny. And Bruce was all form and perfect, then it shifted, "Oh, hey, Bruce is gonna be the guy. Look at the style, look at the form." And then Andy just-- when he turned 16, everything kicked in. ♪ Andy was a little kid when Kelly started winning world titles. I guarantee you he watched every single video tape that Kelly had ever been on, and dissected him, tried to surf like Kelly, guaranteed. And guaranteed he was Kelly's biggest fan. ♪ He had the dominant, kind of, gonna-be-a-world-champ attitude, even when he was a young kid. He didn't want to lose, he wanted to win every contest. I think when he really became a household name is when he qualified so quick in the WQS, onto the CT, and then as we all know, did that huge rise and crash. Andy was a brash young kid and cocky when he went on tour. Going into that next level, if you don't have your game tight, no matter who it is, not Andy, not anybody else, the big boys are ready to chew you up and spit you out for breakfast. ♪ All a sudden, he thought, "Hey, this is me, I'm a rock star." He kind of got a little loud and didn't realize what he kinda had going and got swept up into the fast life on tour, which is so easy to do. Falling off the tour was a rude awakening, in a sense, but a nice slap of reality that kind of set him on his course. ♪ Kelly and Andy had to work for what they got. It didn't come to them, you know, where it was some sort of legacy or some trust-fund kid. They came from very humble beginnings, both of them. ♪ Kelly was bred to be more of a smooth machine whereas Andy was bred to be a rigid killer. ♪

You know, that first year I got back on tour, Andy really stepped it up, he won a couple of contests early in the year, and I think that was-- you know, 2002 was really the year of the rise of Andy. ♪ Kelly was the best surfer on Earth, undisputed. When Andy came on the scene, he was far from the best surfer on Earth. You know, I mean, he was an amazing surfer, he had a lot of talent, but he kicked and scratched his way, all the way, from here to here, and like was, you know? ♪ Then he'd come back into the game after being on hiatus, and then coming back in and expecting to be right back on top, and all of a sudden, who's this guy in the ring that keeps knocking me out? Then all of a sudden, that's when the rivalry starts. ♪ In 2002, Andy and I had a really, like... we had a lot of friction between us. They'd ask me about it, and I'd be like, "You know, I don't want to talk about it." He won all that stuff back in the day, you know, that was then, this is now. ♪ I think going into 2002, Kelly, for him, that was almost sort of a year back and recharging his batteries, trying to figure out what it was like to compete again because he hadn't done it for quite some time, and it probably came to him as a shock how quickly Andy became such a dominant force. ♪ At that point, I think it kind of turned, and then it led the media-- naturally, did what it did and helped to really fuel the fire of that rivalry. Here comes the world champion, Andy Irons! I won 2002, and that's when it all-- the media, I was trying to get used to, but 2003 was wild. ♪ I remember reading so much stuff that Kelly had said, and I remember seeing stuff in like, Sports Illustrated, wrote a total biased article that made me look horrible, and they fabricated a bunch of stuff, which I thought was really heavy, because not even surf mags were doing what Sports Illustrated, this giant magazine, wrote. ♪ ♪ A teenage love affair ♪ ♪ A teenage love ♪ You know, it's funny, because in ways, it was totally blown out of proportion in the media, that tension between us, and in other ways, people didn't know about it. It was maybe more than people thought. I ended up kind of running with it and just kinda going, "You know what? Yeah, (bleep) Kelly." ♪ When you become obsessed with being the best you can be and winning, you have to come at every angle you can come up with or figure out. It's good, bad, and uglies of how I'm gonna take this guy down. He's read all those books, I guarantee you. The Art of War, how to get in the other competitor's head. He denies it, and I know he'll say he doesn't do it, but there's no doubt about it. There was a time I went over to housesit off the wall, and it was a house he was staying at or whatever. I didn't even know it, I just--I thought that-- I thought this guy that worked for Bruce was staying there, somebody's like, "Yeah, Damien's staying at that house." He shows up at my house, walks right in, asking for some guy named Damien. I'm like, "What? Damien?" And he knew I was staying there, I mean, I'm pretty sure he knew. And Andy was making food in the kitchen, and Steve Sherman was there, and he like, slyly took a photo of it. Yeah, the infamous photo. To me, it seemed like a little bit of a mind game. Like, he was stalking and checking out my territory and seeing what was going on. Because he took it that way, I realized, like, "Whoa, this is heavier than I even thought." Those guys were at each other's throats mentally, like, watching it and like, it was that close to seeming like it was gonna turn over into being something even more, like, physical. We were out practicing for the contest. We were just out warming up a pipe, and it was a pretty crowded day. Andy was paddling for the wave, and I flipped around and backed him up, and he missed it and I caught it, and I fell back out, and he just started screaming at me. Just lighting me up in the water in front of everybody, it was pretty funny. My whole driving force right now is to take his little pretty picture and just crush it. ♪ The guy came up to me before the final at the Pipeline Masters 2003, biggest heat of the year, the final, right before it all goes down, coming up to me, pats me on the back. Might have been sincere, might not have. "I just want to let you know, I love you like a brother." Right before the biggest heat of my life. Like, "What?" He thought like, "Oh, he's playing a mind game with me or something." That's just weird. I don't know how to take that. I blocked it right out, went out and surfed my heat. ♪ I think at that point, I had already given up. I knew I was gonna lose. I woke up that morning and I knew I was gonna lose. I was so stressed out. It was my dad's birthday, and he had died a year before, and there was just a lot of things all accumulating. ♪ I just wanted that day to be over with. I wanted that year to be over with. I wanted it all to just go away. ♪ Kelly put every ounce of his abilities and performance into 2003, and he came up just short of beating Andy that year, and that was probably one of the most difficult losses I think Kelly ever was able to take. It was tough for me, you know, 'cause I lost, and... that was sort of symbolic of like, my life. I felt like I was losing at that time. ♪ He wasn't the guy I grew up looking up to anymore. He was the guy that I wanted to beat more than anything. He was saying all this kind of crap, and I just wanted nothing better than to leave him on the beach with a loss. ♪ Give me one reason and I'll give you more ♪ ♪ It seems I'm not... ♪ '04 was like, you know, that year to me was just a wash. I just felt like I stayed stuck in the same place I was. Not only was Andy really battling Kelly for real, he was literally schooling him. Like, hands down regulating him. I never thought I'd see the day. Pure emotion, rage. I just put my heart into it. Everything I had in myself to, you know, whatever it took to beat him. There was a time where I literally would go to sleep at night thinking of ways to punch him in the face. That's so good. I remember I was in France one time. I remember I was like, hitting this bag. I was just training one day, and I was hitting it, and I was just like, imagining it was Andy. We were so intense, it was so deep, where I would be on the beach with my voodoo doll hoping that he would lose, and every turn, I'd be so critical on every turn he did, on every wave he caught. Buddy I know was like, "He's looking to overscore it" kind of a thing. I thought Andy certainly had the talent and the ability to be able to beat anyone in the world, but to be able to sustain that for three years is unbelievable. ♪ Losing is where you start to learn about yourself. Losing's where, you know, the good stuff happens inside. ♪ The next year, I seen just how... how gnarly he can be when he gets on a roll, and how he literally just... it's so hard to get him off it. ♪ Jeffreys was another good one, but unfortunately, Andy was like, really, really bummed at that contest, you know? ♪ Kelly needed a 9.3, and he did three turns that were, you know, pretty good. ♪ And he fell on his fourth, and I was on the beach, I saw the wave, I was like, "There's no way they can give him a score," but I couldn't hear 'em, and they gave him a 9.5, and I saw him claiming in the water, I was like, "There's no way." And I was in disbelief. ♪ My other score was a little underballed maybe, so maybe they gave me a little... I mean, I was really stoked when I won it, but afterwards I was kinda bummed, you know, 'cause Andy was so bummed. You know what, I've been in the same case. I've had a heat against him in France where I should have lost, I should have lost in the semi-finals against him. He surfed a lot sharper, and I got overscored on my last wave, I needed an 8.5 and got a 9. ♪ In Japan, I had such a good contest, I was so on my game, and I felt really, really good about that. ♪ When they were competing, it was nothing for them to be behind by a 9.5 with 30 seconds left in the heat. In Japan, Andy pulled out a 9.6 I think it was, or it could have been even a 10-point run, literally with 30 seconds left to go in the heat. ♪ Fair and square, he won. I was still stoked, you know, he outdid me in the final. Kelly had rivals, you know, there were times in Kelly's career where a guy would really give him a run for a year, whether it be Sunny or whether it be Shane Beschen at one point, or Rob made a run for like six months or something, but... it was never super significant, and it was never equal. ♪ You know, competitively in sports and stuff, you get to see what people are made of when they really get pushed, their back to the wall, and that's really what the spirit of competition is about. Can guys on the same level go at it? I think he's pushed me as much as Tom Curren has, you know? I think it's taken me through competition to a place that I don't think I could have ever gotten to. ♪ I got so close that one year, it would have been like four titles, I would have been so stoked. I mean, I'm still stoked with three, but the fourth one, the one you don't get, is always the one you want the most. And, uh, the next year, he won by like a thousand points. Like, I wasn't even close to him. To be on top, to be there all the time, you always know somebody wants to beat you, somebody wants to take you down, and that pressure, it's either gonna make or break a person. I caught myself getting less interested and started partying a lot. And then I kind of got in a bad slump and then lost pretty much all interest in the whole competitive thing. Just wasn't fun to me anymore, I was miserable. It like, made me change my surfing. I didn't have fun surfing anymore. I'd go weeks without surfing. And I've never had that happen in my life, where surfing's been the only thing that's been there for me, non-stop, 100 percent, I could always count on surfing. It's always been there for good and bad times, no matter what. Right now, I didn't even want to surf. I was just kind of over it. Just burned, fried. So, that was hard. ♪ The things that are really difficult are the things that really change people. You know, roll with the punches. ♪ Winter ♪ ♪ From the ♪ ♪ Size of ♪ ♪ The lump in ♪ ♪ My throat ♪ ♪ Got a lump in my throat ♪ ♪ Rusted wheel ♪ ♪ Planted still ♪ ♪ ♪ Rusted wheel ♪ ♪ Can't move on ♪ ♪ ♪ And it feels ♪ ♪ Just like ♪ ♪ The ground ♪ ♪ ♪ But trapped in another way ♪ ♪ Just still in the ground ♪ ♪ The ground ♪ ♪ The ground ♪ ♪ Had a lot of things change. I got married, got someone that's gonna be there for the rest of my life, I love her, and that just made me want to get motivated back into competition and get my life back on track. It's simple science. When a fire is fueled, the flames will burn. In the case of Kelly and Andy, it was outside influences that suddenly had the two believing in their own hype. Mere competitors had become mortal enemies, but somewhere along the way, both surfers had to stop and ask themselves, "Why?" ♪ When I was on the Gold Coast this year, contest was on, Andy and I haven't surfed against each other yet, and he came up and just said, "Hey, I want to talk to you," and he opened up to me about a lot of things that, you know, are very personal to him, and his world just went from this to this, you know, just totally opened up. He said, "I'd love to do something with you. I'd like to go on a surf trip, put this thing to rest, and like, actually not work against each other." ♪ I wrote him a really long email after that and told him how, you know, it was such a great week, and the really important thing to me was what happened between us. To me, that was like a big growing thing for both of us. He's embraced it enough to where I'm fortunate enough to be that guy taking him on. I mean, luckily, you know, it could be Taj, it could've been Parko, could've been Nick. You know, it's been amazing for my career, you know, all the way around, and it's given me a great position in surfing.

♪ Truth be told, nobody expected this trip to happen. To get two seemingly mortal enemies to agree to sequester themselves on a tiny island seemed like a ridiculous notion. Yet despite hectic schedules, preconceived notions, and the most heated rivalry in modern surf history, somehow it all came together. The end result: a ten-day purging of feelings, dispelling of rumors, and a burying of the hatchet once and for all. ♪ Deep down, we probably wanted to be friends, and there's still, you know, there's still that little tension thing there. It's not bad, you know, we're not ready to fight each other. There's still that, "Hey, just... remember I'm over here." "I'm over here, too." ♪ ♪ Choke ♪ ♪ You choke it but you know ♪ ♪ It comes back when you're sleeping ♪ ♪ Cuts you in the dark ♪ ♪ ♪ Burn ♪ ♪ The city is too bright ♪ ♪ I'll stay here with my secrets ♪ ♪ Until it fades to dust ♪ ♪ ♪ I'll stay here with my secrets ♪ ♪ It's so cool to look over, and I know it's weird, I catch myself in contest strategy where I'm out there trying to get the best wave, I'm trying to get-- you know. It's pure progression, you know. I see him surfing, it makes me want to try to surf that much better and that much harder. I don't know, he's still sort of every bit as intense when he's just out having a brief surf. I started off competitive with my brother, then graduated to the big leagues with Kelly Slater, the ultimate surfer, and now I'm still doing it. That's the only thing I think that pushes me, keeps me, you know, doing good at what I do. I know that Andy has made me a better, more focused, and stronger competitor and surfer. You know, whether I have been in situations I wanted to admit it or not, he's always been one of my favorite surfers, and this thing kind of consumed us. It took us--it was like people were speaking for us. You know, and the true-- the real feelings in there maybe were a little bit different, you know? ♪ I'll stay here with my secrets ♪ ♪

♪ I didn't want to just go blindly asking people to come on the trip with us, inviting people, but... I said, "What do you think about Pottz coming?" And Andy was like, "Sick!" I'd been hanging out with Pottz, who was my original very first favorite surfer of my life was Pottz, so having him hanging-- I've never really hung out with him the way we have here, and to see a guy ripping so hard at 43 is nothing but inspirational. I can't wait to be 43 now. Like, I can be properly psyched to try to be ripping at 43. I told him Ross was gonna come, too, maybe, and he's like, "Yeah, full on, bring him." So, and then I said, you know, I said, "Shane's in Bali, we can try to get him up here," and he's like, "That would be insane!" He's been a friend of me since the beginning, someone I've traveled with and stayed with him. The reason I ride for Billabong is, you know, guys like Occy and Shane. Those two, to me, to be able to go travel and surf with them was a big part of me signing with Billabong. To have him around is awesome. ♪ Andy and I have this, like, weird connection, you know? Because Shane's like my best buddy, and Andy and him are super close, and then I grew up with Brock, Brock and Andy are super tight, but Brock's kind of like my older brother, Borg's like Andy's older brother, and then Borg and Brock are best friends. It's like, we have such a weird connection. Like, there's no choice. Like, we gotta figure out how to get along. ♪ I think it's gonna be nothing but great from here on out, you know? As far as competitively, it's gonna be on as always. On a personal one-on-one level, almost straight up, you know? You know, we have been important in each other's lives, you know, in some way, and there's always good things to learn from that, take from that. You don't go out and do the thing you're best at because you want to kill somebody. You know, you go out and do that because you want to make people better. ♪ Nervous John ♪ ♪ ♪ Rescues all the whores ♪ ♪ Bleeding nose... ♪ Sometimes I wish I wouldn't have said some of the things I did, and, you know, I can't take them back, but, you know, it's worked out to the way it is, and I wouldn't change it now because I wouldn't be where I'm at now. And life's good right now, I like where I'm at, and, you know, maybe that's what it took to teach me a few lessons. There have been those times that Andy has been just all-consuming to me, pissing me off, and, you know, by the sounds of things, I did a pretty good job throwing it back. You know, I'm at an age now where I want to take the positives out of things. ♪ Steal your sweet decline ♪ ♪ This is the longest goodbye ♪ ♪ ♪ Aching to get your pocket ♪ Those three years there straight where Andy just had that magic all the time, but now he's-- I think he's doing it from a different place right now, and he's trying to figure out his bearings a little bit, and, you know, again, I think, you know, maybe he'll find for himself, maybe those results will be the end result of all this work he's doing in his life, you know? It's not over for me, definitely. He's 36 and winning again. That just makes me all that more motivated to go and win another title. You know, I think I definitely got another title in me, and guys like him are gonna push me to try to get that. ♪
