Kelly Slater has injured his foot again, casting doubts on whether we'll see the champ at J-Bay this year.

You'll recall, the current injury Slates is nursing actually dates back to a year ago when he folded his foot at J-Bay. This latest injury's on the same foot, his right, sustaining a strained ligament.

Now obviously Slater's been free-surfing with his injured peg, notably Fiji – chucking himself into a 15 foot tube and repping at the Founders' Cup. This latest set back is a shame, Kelly being one to watch whenever the circus rolls into South Africa. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
