Pro Surfer Fights Off Shark Attack

A world champion surfer stopped a shark from attacking him by punching the beast in the back.

Surfing legend Mick Fanning fought off the animal during the final round of the J-Bay Open in South Africa.

He described the moment he realized the shark was behind him as terrifying, saying: ‘I was waiting for the teeth to come at me.’

Footage released by the World Surf League shows the shark’s fin rise from the water before following Mr Fanning as he paddled out of the shallows.

The three-time world champion was knocked off his board before he tried to use it as a shield to keep the shark from biting him. The clips ends with officials hauling him into a rescue boat.

I’d say he probably needed a new wetsuit after that, but, dude is a pro. I bet the shark ended up being the one shitting itself.
