Sharks – A never-ending fear that affect beach goers all over the world.
Share are animals that are always on our minds, yet we tell ourselves “it won’t be me.” Last week, the unthinkable almost happened at Jeffrey’s Bay, South
Africa. Key word ALMOST.
If you haven’t heard by now, professional surfer Mick Fanning was attacked by a great white shark while competing in the finals of the J-Bay Open off the
coast of South Africa. Luckily he fought off the shark (literally), and came away unscathed.
J-Bay is home to some of the world’s best waves…and also the world’s most dangerous sharks. This is a price the surfers are willing to pay, because
let’s be honest, an attack is the last thing you’d expect to happen. The thought may cross your mind before paddling out to sea, but is usually followed
with “what are the odds.”
We are glad that we can look back at this event and say that it was almost the most tragic event to happen in surfing history. Again, key word being ALMOST.
Our advice to Mick and all you thrill seekers out there, next time grab a Jetpack and fly above the sharks!! It’s a much safer alternative
