Can you see the crack ?? It took me a while. Have a look.
For some reason there is a press release about my Kankle on TheBOMBsurf.com - CLICKHERETOREADIT.
Apparently broken ankles are newsworthy. oh.

How to break your ankle 101
Tammy-Lee Smith has this to say about today :
“My friend Stacey goes hard when she surfs! She likes to get high… in the air… on her surfboard. Today proved this when she tried her trade mark frontside punt but Salmon Bay backwash was cruel. She came off second best to the shallow bumpy sand bank waves and tweaked her ankle. I personally thought it was broken so I bought her NikNaks to make her feel better. It still might be broken, she’s gotta get x-rays She was brave. “
Tammy called me brave ! First time ever. Ya. So. I messed up my ankle. it hurts. It’s a now a Kankle. I went for a frontside air on a tiny wave and landed SO wrong on my back foot – its beyond swollen and I have been taking painkillers ALL day. yoh.
I have to have X-rays tomorrow morning at Alberlito Hospital to check out what the vibe is.
I have pics. Cos yup, we are on a photo shoot and Pierre is always pointing his LARGE lens at us.
BELOW IS A SEQUENCE OF THE WAVE I BROKE MY ANKLE ON :
1st frame….2nd frame…..and 3rd frame is split seconds before I landed so very wrong. I’m about to cry when Tanah and Mich are helping me up the beach. Shot guys.
In Ballito for a Mr Price/RED Surf team shoot.
Arrived in KZN around 08:00 Friday morning, got some admin done in Durbs – visited one of my sponsors ISLAND STYLE and my board shaper BARON STANDER. Got to Ballito early afternoon and went straight down to Sunrise Point for the first shoot. It was around 3-4ft, dead low and blowing onshore NE. If you have ever surfed Sunrise you will know that it gets super heavy and Friday was no different. For some reason I decided to surf the Quadpod (WTF!?) and got worked – not enough drive/hold/complete opposite of the board I should have been riding out there. Had a few fun waves, nothing great. The boys were tearing. Here are some of the shots (c) Pierre Tostee
