Australian surfer Mick Fanning was unharmed after being attacked by a shark during the J-Bay Open on Jeffreys Bay in South Africa. The competition was suspended following the incident.
Fanning was able to protect himself from the shark and swim away, and was quickly picked up by a competition official on a jet ski.
Fanning said after making it back to safety that he was “waiting for the teeth.”

“I was just sitting there and I felt something just get stuck in my leg rope, and I was kicking trying to get it away. I just saw fins. I was waiting for the teeth.”
