SHANE POWELL [3min]

This thin handsome Aussie was a quiet WCT killer, at least when he had his mind in the game. Finished runner-up to Slater in the 1994 ratings, dropped all the way down to 15th not long after, then shoot back to #3 in 1998. Drank enough beer during that period to fill the Surf Ranch pool two times over. Does that make his achievements more impressive, or less? Your call.
