Kelly Slater to miss Keramas
It's a tale of two camps: Right now the CT surfers are squatting in rice paddies around Keramas waiting for the Bali Pro to begin, while the XL Lords are winging in to Fiji for the mother of all swells.
So what happens if you've got an umbilical connection to Cloudbreak, yet you're contracted to surf the CT?
Well, if you're Kelly Slater then you blow off professional obligations, maybe withdrawal through...ahem, injury, as if Bali was Brazil, and then it's next stop Nadi.
What, me worry?
Kelly's photographer, Todd Glaser, is currently on Tavarua and was expecting Slater to arrive this morning. He missed his flight and will now arrive tomorrow.
Word is, Slater wanted to be at Cloudbreak for what could be a historic swell. He'll be joined in the water by a roll call of XL surfers with both Tavarua and Namotu booked solid.
PS: Word from Tavy was that Restaurants was 6-8ft this afternoon and roaring.
