A surfing competition was cancelled today due to a shark attack on one of the finalists.
Mick Fanning competing in the Jeffreys Bay surfing event was attacked by a shark as he paddled his board off the waters of South Africa. The Ex-world champ was competing in the final of the surfing event against fellow Australian Julian Wilson. The video shows the attack and how Fanning grappled with the fish before punching the man-eater away from himself.
The competitive surfer was on his toes during the attack and managed to fend off the monster from the deep before being rescued by the event organizers in a boat.

Jeffreys Bay, one of the five most famous surfing destinations in the world, is an hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth in South Africa’s Eastern Cape.
There have been five shark attacks off Eastern Cape since March last year, when 66-year-old father-of-three Friedrich Burgstaller – an Austrian tourist – was killed while swimming at a beach in Port St Johns.
