Capbreton, 1600h

A source has informed SE HQ that nine time World Champion has left the building...

The word is that Kelly, troubled by an ankle injury has flown out of the Basque Country and will be visiting a specialist in America for treatment, thus missing his upcoming heat in the Billabong Pro Mundaka. Whether or not he will return for Rip Curl The Pro Search in Peniche is uncertain, and could well depend on the surf forecast.
