Leo Fioravanti Stabbed in Head with Fins

Leo Fioravanti Stabbed in Head with Fins

by -

18 year old Leo Fioravanti bailed on an air Saturday, and his board snapped back at him, slicing his ear open.

“I had a tough day free surfing at Huntington yesterday. I got my own fin to the head and ended up needing 20 stitches internal and external!! Thanks for all the best wishes everyone. Going to do everything in my power to be ready to surf my heat on Tuesday!!”


After about 20 stitches inside and outside his ear, he spent the night at the hospital.

Luckily things seem to be healing quickly for Leo, as he posted the following today on Instagram:
