Switchfoot has been forced to postpone their current tour after a freak surfing injury to front-man Jon Foreman.

Foreman slipped off his board near the popular surf spot known as "Stuckout" in Cardiff, California.  He had to get 30 stitches in his upper lip making it extremely difficult to sing or speak.

The singer joked with Radio.com...

I had a little conversation with my board and it turned into an argument.  The board won the argument.  I wish I could tell you I was saving a kitten from the jaws of a shark, but nope.

Switchfoot plans to resume their tour within a few days and is currently celebrating their latest album 'Fading West' which holds the top spot on iTunes.
