Huntington Beach, California (HawaiiNewsNow) - Granger Larsen's (Lahaina, Maui) amazing run of results in the U.S. Open of Surfing was stopped short by Kelly Slater in the quarterfinals Sunday.  Larsen, 20, failed to find any high scoring rides to finish equal fifth overall, a career high result. Although he fell out of the running for the $100,000 grand prize, Larsen said he was still pleased with his weeks performance. " I'm stoked with how I did and it's cool to go up against Slater but I wish I put on a better show. I don't know what happened, I kinda just had a shocker but i'm still happy. I just wish I got him."
