Californian Shane Beschen earned pro surfing's first perfect heat in 1996 at the Billabong Kirra Pro on Australia's Gold Coast. And while there have been six perfect heats since then, none have totaled 30 points. Before 2002, heat totals consisted of a surfer's top three waves, unlike the two-wave system used today. Beschen scored three 10-pointers and a 9.99 for an epic performance that still stands as the only of its kind. Watch the video in the Encyclopedia of Surfing.
