El 11 veces campeón del mundo se ha lesionado en el pie y mañana no podrá entra en la ronda 3 de J-Bay.

“Mañana voy a llorar viendo las olas” ha dicho visiblemente triste.

La magnitud de la lesión está por determinar, pero es muy posiblemente que Kelly también se quede fuera de Tahiti en el que puede ser su último año en el Tour. El mismo vaticina operación y 6 semanas fuera…

You ever folded your entire foot backwards? If you try it sometime, this is what it might look like. I pulled into a barrel this morning and the whitewash as it closed out bounced the board back into my foot, taking all the pressure into the metatarsals, kinda like smashing my foot with a big hammer as hard as I can. Sorta feels like I'm giving birth out of my foot right now! I'm guessing surgery and 6 week holiday is in order. Not looking forward to 30 hour flight home before surgery though. Ouch! It sucks but so many people deal with such horrible things around this world everyday that a broken foot is pretty minor in the scheme of things. Sometimes a bad thing is a good thing. I'll make the best of my time off. #ThatsGonnaLeaveAMark #INeedPainkillers
