Fanning fights off Shark during J-Bay Final

The final at today’s J Bay Open came to an unexpected end when Mick Fanning got a little up close and personal with one of the locals.

As the images and video of Micks scrap bounce around the internet and make the inevitable leap to the mainsteam media, we’ve been given access to some more shots of the incident direct from the WSL. Emotional stuff for all involved!
