Hi Guys,

Just to let everyone out there know, the reason I did not compete in Mundaka is because I have been having a problem with my hip since J-Bay.

I thought I could work through it and get it sorted but as time has gone on it has just gotten worse. I decided in France the best thing to do was to go home and really figure this thing out. I came home, got all the tests done and the doctors tell me I have a slight tear in the hip joint.

So, I’m laid up for another 10 days to see if it will hopefully heal. If it doesn’t then I might have to get an arthroscope. I hope it doesn’t come to that as I am losing my mind already without surfing. Being bored on the couch isn’t that fun. But all is good, I am being positive and hope to make a full recovery.

Other than that, not too much else has happened for me. I missed Mundaka, which looked fun, and I wanted to represent Australia at the ISA World Titles in Portugal but had to pull out too. Luckily for me the waves at home have been pretty average so that’s making it a little easier. Anyway, I start some rehab in the next couple of days so that should keep me moving in the right direction.
