Kelly has just announced on Instagram he will be retiring after Bells. Now, it’s April 2 in Australia, but are we being fooled?

“Big decisions in life don’t come easy and it’s taken a lot of quiet time and personal introspection to come to this conclusion…The ‪#‎RipCurlPro‬ was the first event I surfed on tour and it’s fitting that this will be my last @wsl. There are too many people to thank and memories to go over but here’s to hoping I can pull a rabbit out of the hat and win one last event this week. My board feels great (thank you @cisurfboards and @travlee) and I’m as psyched as ever to just surf and enjoy. Hope to see everyone down there at ‪#‎BellsBeach‬ this week. Not the best forecast but I’m channeling my ‪#‎FloridaRoots‬!”
