Paleo chef, Pete Evans has had his arm torn open after a nasty run in with an exposed reef whilst surfing.
Forget Insta-worthy pictures of coffee and beaches, Pete’s followers were treated to this not-so-glam photo of his arm covered in blood as he shared his gruesome adventure.
“You gotta roll the dice sometimes. The wave before this one, was one of my best barrels I have ever had.
“Super low tide at Restaurants with just a couple of guys out. So much fun with a little pain thrown in too. @kellyslater & @tomo_surfboards I sacrificed your board to save a bit more of my flesh on some exposed reef!

Luckily, Pete was quickly treated.
“The doc on the island just got all the coral out and put his special touches to it. Ouchy,” the My Kitchen Rules star added in the comment section.
His wife, Nicola Robinson, was quick to send her love back at home, writing, “Never mind about the board... you only have a hundred or so, sneakily stored in every corner & every nook & cranny of the barn! Blowing you a kiss & a huge snuggle for your arm Baby!”
“Too funny. Yes but you know I will replace it with a new one! Love you angel. 3 more sleeps xoxo,” Pete replied.
Safe to say, Pete is handling the injury like a champ!
