Note: NSFW Language included in video

Sunday’s surfing competition is one that surfer Mick Fanning will never forget and is was not for a good reason.

While preparing for his run in the Finals of the World Surf League’s J-Bay Open in South Africa, Fanning was suddenly attacked by a shark.

“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,” Fanning said in the video.

“I just saw fins. I was waiting for the teeth to come at me. I punched it in the back.”

Luckily Fanning was able to escape the attack without injury, but it was quite a scare.
