Professional surfer Ryan Hunt was attacked by a shark that he mistook for a rock at Wallabi Point, in New South Wales, Australia.
The surfer posted the image on Facebook and captioned it: “Apparently sharks like feet.” At least he’s got a sense of humour about it.
Not only was he lucky to survive but his injuries are fairly minor for a shark attack. As you can see his foot is still intact.
In an interview Hunt said: ‘It’s very very painful at the moment, I only had a couple of hours sleep… but if it’s not serious damage… and no punctured joints and toes then I could be home by tonight.’
He added: ‘I’ll definitely be surfing again as soon as I can.’
Hunt recently returned from a surfing trip to Japan with sponsors O’Neill.
