Owen Wright has reached out to his fans and the surfing community to provide an update on his head injury, suffered in December last year while surfing Pipeline on the North Shore of Hawaii.

The Australian’s Facebook post today said:

“Thought I’d update you guys on the injury. After finishing a treatment I came out wondering what the hell had happened in the last 6 months… it was a total blur. I was a bit freaked out but was feeling strangley good. Doctors assured me that it was normal at this stage and that I have turned a massive corner and I’m on the right track to 100% recovery. For the last couple months ive been adapting to this stage in my life… everything that has happened since this experience has given me total differnet feeling to my life that I’m incredibly grateful for.

Ps I’m back surfing a short board… yew”
