In his Own Words: Kelly Slater

No one writes more than Kelly Slater, who goes above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to posting on his @kellyslater Instagram account. Not only does it give us a good look into his personal life but he often enlightens us with a story or a more in depth look into the mind of the greatest surfer of all time. Most recently, there were several reports about Slater breaking his toes in Tavarua and rumors running around that he would not be competing in the Pipe Masters. Hogwash! Slater took to Instagram to set the record straight, and here it is … in his own words!!

#FootPrognosis…I broke my second and third toes and also sprained three or four toes on left foot surfing Cloudbreak a couple days ago. Three weeks or so of healing in a walking boot and a couple more weeks of some rehab but should be ready to go by the #PipeMasters waiting period. The foamball from the lip landing inside the barrel bounced back up and flipped the board into my foot, hyper-extending the toes backwards. My second toe was sitting kind of across my third one so I knew something was a little off. The worst thing about it was how good the surf was and having to watch from the sidelines afterwards. At least the boys scored a few before the wind went bad and swell backed off. The day before that I went over the falls and broke my fin off with my knee so I'm actually probably lucky to not have gotten hurt worse. Good time to reflect and cleanse the body after two weeks of bacon and barrels on @tavaruaislandresort! 🐖🐷🐽🐗 Thanks for all the messages from friends and strangers the last couple of days. #ExcusesExcuses 😬🏄 👊
