A former pro surfer is in hospital with suspected brain injuries after being attacked outside a Newcastle hotel on Friday night.

Jake Sylvester, 23, sustained a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain, but according to a report by dailytelegraph.com.au, he is in a stable condition.

Apparently Sylvester was asked to leave the hotel and there was a scuffle outside, but police maintain that the coward's punch was "unprovoked, totally vicious and uncalled for".

According to AAP, police are appealing for information from witnesses to the incident.
