Clay Marzo - Comeback

CLAY Marzo's April 2010 knee injury allowed him plenty of time to eat. Ligaments can be a bitch to recover from and by July the enigmatic surfer's weight ballooned to 200 pounds.

Like an inverse performance distribution curve Clay was at one point reduced to flopping around on a bodyboard before a knee brace allowed him to drop the weight and get back to his twisted inverted top.

What's the best way to train for surfing? Get in the brine and go for it, that's a lesson we can all heed. In the meantime if you want more of Dr Marzo the surf surgeon then head here.
