You read that correctly, Mick “Shark Puncher” Fanning took on a SIZABLE shark today at the J-Bay surf finals in South Africa. A rare occasion as all the cameras were on Mick as this large dorsal fin emerges right behind him and chomps down on his leash. Luckily, Mick is a scrappy Australian and screamed just a little while landing a few punches on the fish before swimming to the oncoming water patrol. Check the footage below.
Judges are still debating how to rate Micks heat, talk of some kind of multiplier for how many punches landed, size and number of sharks and distance you ride the shark are all on the table. Well done Mick, glad you and everyone are safe.
