It was the ‘shark incident’ seen around the world. Mick Fanning and Julian Wilson had just paddled out for the final of the 2015 J-Bay Open and were waiting for their opening rides to roll through, when live on screen Mick was set upon by a large White Shark. We all know the story, we’ve all seen the footage.
