Switchfoot Singer Jon Foreman’s Face Slashed In Surfing Accident

By Jay Tilles

GRAMMY-award winning band Switchfoot will postpone their hometown record release show originally scheduled for tonight (Jan. 15) at a San Diego nightclub due to an injury within the band. Singer Jon Foreman was treated for a wound sustained to his face during a morning surf session Monday, and though he will fully recover, he will be unable to sing for a few days.

“I had a little conversation with my board and it turned into an argument. The board won the argument,” joked Foreman in a phone call with Radio.com this afternoon.

Riding a popular Cardiff, CA surf spot known as “stuckout” the avid surfer went to make a routine top turn, “Something I’ve done hundreds of times and just slipped and went the wrong way, recounted Forman.”

“I wish I could tell you I was saving a kitten from the jaws of a shark but nope,” Foreman said with a chuckle.

Foreman received nearly 30 stitches, many of which are inside his upper lip. Thankful, he says it could have been a lot worse. A mere inch up or down, the razor sharp fin could have got both of his eyes or throat. “I still have a nose left and all my teeth.”
