Nikki Van Dijk had a pretty rough day near the end of the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach. Earlier in the morning, she got nailed by a flying surfboard and suffered a pretty decent shiner. And then this happened. And you know what the crazy thing was? She stood up, dusted herself off, and paddled back out like she didn’t just wear Bells Beach like a Halloween mask. High five, Nikki. I would have run screaming up the stairs, weeping uncontrollably.
