If you didn’t know Mick Fanning’s name before, you will now. The 3 time world surfing champion fought off a shark attack at the J-Bay Open in South Africa during the competition. Somehow he came out with only a minor injury to his knuckle. The competition was of course called off. Fanning’s mom saw the whole thing live, watch the long agonizing moment when a wave hid him as he was struggling to escape the shark.
As you can imagine he was pretty shaken up after the whole thing.
Since he wasn’t seriously hurt, naturally the internet went wild with memes.
