John Stokes, who presents drive on the ABC Sunshine Coast, had a bit of an accident on the weekend.
"I had a little run-in with my surfboard on the weekend. I got a fantastic wave, got in the barrel, came out of it, second coming up, nearly came out of it, but it sucked dry. There was no water underneath."
"The board came out of the wave, I hit the bottom and thought get away from the board, which I tried to do, but obviously I didn't, just as I thought, 'Oh good, the board's nowhere near me' – whack. It got me across the bridge of the nose."
