Fanning didn't fight it off. He did what anyone would do - shit himself (not literally) and flail around. I find it hilarious and sad all at once how the media and dumb asses try to make out he is some kind of hero that "fought" a shark. Even i fhe did "fight" it off doing something for self-preservation when the option is death i s not heroic. Pure over hyped bull shit.

I am a Jeffrey's Bay resident, and I was at the event when the incident happened. This was NOT a shark attack, but rather a case of mistaken identity. Mick Fanning was never in any form of danger. The media made this out to be the "end of the world", and Fanning also wrongly handled the situation.

I am really glad he is ok but make no mistake he did not punch the shark or try to fight the shark. Mick was trying to get on his board the whole time and the shark hit him with its caudal fin and knocked him off making Mick swim away from the board . He was being tossed around like anyone would. Sharks are apex predators and we are no match without weapons. The truth is the shark went after the surf board because it mistaked it for food. If it wanted the human it would have went for the human and it would have been very tragic. Once again I am thankful for him to be alive but he did not fight the shark.

Lmao to everyone saying it the sharks home... I hope yall never go to the ocean or have never been... ever hahahahaha. That is the most petty comment I ever heard. I get that its their home/territory/habitat.... but damn. A guy is being attacked by a shark and its whatever.. if it was you attacked by a lion running after you are you just going to stand there saying ow? LMAO!!!! Sorry but you aint out running a lion... that just aint happening hahahaha. That Lion get you before you get 5 steps... its easy for you to say when its not you... I mean that's just like saying your at a party and the person hosting the party at your house pulls out a gun... then someone else attending the party has a gun and he shoots the person that owns the house hahahhaa. just because its an animal and human and different situations doesn't mean its not the same kind of deal... lmao.... you just gonna stand there somone biting your leg. like your having a great time? hahahaha

We all have phobias, but I think my shark phobia is just common sense, I don't hate them I think they are the best, I'm from Canada so our badass animals are bears, grizzly, Kodiak, and polar, but we are both on land, sure if a bear wants to kill you your most likely to die from one than a shark who really doesn't prefer you next to tuna, but GODDAMN IT'S BEING IN WATER AND KNOWING THERE CAN BE A RAZOR TOOTHED ,black eyed beast the size of an station wagon coming up at you like a missle, (I don't get it I just CAN'T, you guys are just fucking crazy) and you get on a board that's shaped and has the color of a big bright Fish??? Maybe Cuz I'm not from there, but outta every phobia, spiders, snakes, bugs, vermin, ect ect, it's mainly a phobia on being out in the sea and having no clue, what, when and where something monstrous can come up and swallow you whole......uuuuuuuuugh you guys ARE FUCKING FEARLESS

You notice how the sharks always are going for surfboards? They do think that these boards are big fish or even other sharks, that is why it is always bumping before biting a board. Fiona Ayerst (S. Africa) and Ocean Ramsey (Hawaii) constantly swim with sharks, Ayerst in bikinis, and Ramsey in a wetsuit, but both of these ladies have the technique of being able to hold onto a Great White and pet it while hanging on to it. They both devote time and an energy to proving that sharks really aren't the evil man-eaters depicted in movies (Jaws). Now, if you were a sea-lion, that would be a entirely different matter...

В Южной Африке во время соревнований на серфингиста из Австралии
напала акула. Мужчине удалось от нее отбиться. Он ударил хищницу
кулаком, пишет британское издание The Daily Mail.
Позже Мик Фэннинг рассказал, что акула подплыла к нему со спины,
поэтому сразу он ее не заметил. В самый последний момент он успел
спастись от челюстей - отпрыгнул, а потом избил агрессора. Инцидент был
запечатлен на видео. Соревнования транслировались в прямом эфире

here is some things my 11 yr old self knows about bull sharks.....
Adult bull sharks can bite with a maximum force equivalent to 6,000N, a study of their jaws and jaw muscles has shown. It is unclear why bull sharks have such strong bites, which are much greater than required to kill and eat prey. They also bite the victim and let them bleed out so after they can eat ther victims. If the guy didnt hurt the shark the guy would of been badly injured and later he wouldve probably died.thanks for reading bye.

I live on a small island called Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Known for its increasing numbers of Great White sharks, nothing terrifies me more while I'm surfing. The other week, I was surfing with two other dudes. I heard a splash, assuming it was a seal (we have A LOT of seals) and when I looked over, I saw a jet stream coming towards me. I began to paddle in when I looked behind me and saw the most massive great white shark breach for a seal just 7 feet away from me. You could say I paddled in pretty fast. I really wish I was goproing, or someone was shooting pictures.

If he stayed out there wrestling with the shark until the next wave came, then turned around and caught the wave and surfed it to the sand with the shark chasing him the whole way, the judges would probably have given him a score of 10 and he probably would have won the heat. Too bad he didn't think of that at the time. Oh well. Next time.

I don't know if this has been deployed yet, but I had the idea of using an electromagnetic floating fence that throws the sharks orientation off. I did some research and something similar was being developed already. I'm not sure if this took off or was successful, but initial tests seemed positive.

To tell the truth, most sharks only go for the board as they think that it's the body of a seal or something, most people survive shark attacks and also if a shark actually does bite us, we don't taste nice to them so they swim away (most of the time).

WanderleiSilva29 - 5 years ago
+benicecunt o.k.? that would be the very definition of irrational or illogical.... now in this guys case, he may have been thinking exactly what youre saying... all I am saying is there is no proof of that..... his INITIAL thought may have been to grab the board before it drifts and then get on it.... and not necessarily "I need to get on the board right away to prevent getting bit".
benicecunt o.k.

+WanderleiSilva29 It's clear you have never been there.
As a surfer, the board is your only friend in the water, it's your lifeline, the thing that is keeping you afloat. You have nothing else.
Matt is not some panicking tourist, he spends his life on a board, he knows about the ocean.
He is not ''in shock'' like some robbers laughing victim, he knows exactly what is happening and he needs to get back on that board, that is his escape.
I've had two shark incidents, I know exactly what he's thinking.
WanderleiSilva29
WanderleiSilva29 - 5 years ago
+benicecunt o.k. ahhh but you cant prove that.... From an outside perspective that is the obvious conclusion, but when youre in the situation you never know how you would react or what would be running through your mind.... Survival instinct doesn't always take over..... actually, when most people are faced with a real life threatening episode, slow motion occurs in their mind and they have no idea what they are doing or whats going on... You will hear people in interviews say "it all happened so fast" im not sure what happened"...... How about that dude who was held at gunpoint in a bank who laughed in the guys face? The bank robber had a gun to his head and told him he was going to die and the guy just kept laughing..... Odd reaction, don't you think? The fight or flight response didn't kick in..... or how about the guy who decided to walk into that lions den and was attacked by lions? He was bitten several times.... all he did was walk around the den afterward and sitdown on a bench as the lions were within 10 feet of him..... ever hear of freezing or irrational thoughts under pressure? It's easy to say how you would react in a life threatening situation when you aren't the one in it.

It doesn't matter if you think the ocean belongs to humans too. The sharks live there, and this is something that always is going to be a risk, whether you like it or not. Especially risky when you surf in the most shark crowdy water in the world. Anyway if you think about how many sharks humans kill every year, they actually respect us more than we respect them...
