Earlier tonight Kauai’s own Keala Kennelly tweeted a photo to 10 time World Champ Kelly Slater, “here is that pic I told you about. (it looks way better now I swear!” This shot was also posted on her Facebook with the message, ”They say a picture is worth a thousand words… sorry if you were eating dinner. (I look much better now I promise) -KK”
The fact that this injury happened not on the massive tow day, but two days later at 4-5ft says all you need to know about Teahupoo…
Check this video of Keala taking a massive beating on the big day and coming up unscathed.
On the road to recovery after surgery.
”This was one I got on the tow day. Two days before the reef lit me up and sent me to the emergency room. Teahupoo givith and taketh away.”
