Twelve days after Sunny Garcia tragically attempted to take his own life, Kelly Slater was in Bali. They’ve been friends for most of their lives, and as you would imagine, it was not easy on Kelly. Not easy on anyone else, either, but not everyone else had a camera pointed at them as they worked through the emotions of it all.
It’s been about three years now since Sunny’s attempt. It was touch and go for a while there, with doctors deciding to put Sunny into an induced coma, and since then updates on his condition have been pretty sparse. We gather it’s due to some family issues involving lawyers and such, so for now, it appears that all anyone can do is keep Sunny in their thoughts and give the family their privacy.
In the most recent episode of Kelly Slater: Lost Tapes, a film crew was there, 12 days afterwards, when Kelly Slater got the news that doctors were going to pull the plug on Sunny Garcia.
