Re: Surfer Attacked by Shark on Live Tv

He said that he'd be happy to never compete again, which is sad but perfectly understandable, anybody would have thought that he was gone forever as the shark pulled him under water.

Fanning's rival in the finals, fellow Australian Julian Wilson, was in the water at the time of the attack and broke down in tears as he described watching the incident unfold.

Me too! I'm glad he was able to react quickly and make it out of there alive with all limbs intact!

This is why I was never comfortable swimming in the Med once I knew Great Whites also liked to frequent said sea.

Re: Surfer Attacked by Shark on Live Tv

That is crazy. He really kept his wits about him. I guess being jacked up to compete makes that adrenaline rush come even faster.

I guess that was just the shock of the incident, when he arrived back home this morning he revealed that he's having a couple of weeks off then heading back into competition - back into the water.
You'd assume now that he'd be safe, statistically could that happen again? He'd be one unlucky bugger if it did.
