A Surfing Event Is On Hold After This Shark Attack Was Captured On Live TV

The summer of the shark continues.

World champion surfer Mick Fanning was competing at an event in South Africa when a shark came up from behind and NOPE!

*UPDATE: Here’s an interview with Fanning right after the shark attack.

“I felt something grab.. get stuck in my leg rope. And I instantly just jumped away.”

Somehow, someway, Fanning escaped relatively unharmed. The event is on hold for the day according to the #JBay Open Twitter account.
