Fanning sees ‘ huge’ shark
MICK Fanning insists he feels safe at his beloved Jeffreys Bay despite two shark scares in three years.
The Australian and Gabriel Medina were plucked from the water while contesting their J- Bay Open quarter- final because of a three- metre great white shark in the line- up.
Fanning, who was attacked two years ago by a great white in the event final, was eliminated by Brazil’s Medina when they returned to the water.
Fanning saw the footage for the first time when he was recapping the day’s action. “That is huge,” Fanning said. “Look at that thing, that thing is a beast, at least they saw this one. I am glad they got us out of the water.”
