UPDATED -- June 4, 2015/PDT: The injury list for the 2015 Fiji Pro just got even longer: Jordy Smith (ZAF) is the latest Championship Tour surfer who has withdrawn from the event. He will be replaced by Inia Nakalevu, who won a special trial Friday local time.
Smith joins a growing list that also includes Brett Simpson (USA), who was injured at Huntington Beach; John John Florence (HAW), who rolled his ankle in Brazil; Michel Bourez (PYF), who was hurt at Teahupo'o; and Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), who hurt her leg last month.
Due to my knee injury still not 100% iv pulled out of the @wsl #Fiji event.. Really unfortunate that I won't get to compete there this year but my health must always come first.. Always a good laugh with @john_john_florence and @cocom4debarrelkilla at @markkozuki just missing @brettsimpson hope your doing better... Until #Jbay
