Hanalei Bay Closed After Shark Attack

Three teenage fishermen were fishing in Hanalei Bay, Hawaii Monday afternoon when they heard cries for help coming from the water nearby. Tommy Hamai and his friends, Kea Dwight and Chas Weimar, raced their boat out to the source of the commotion and discovered a surfer floating in the bloodied waters.

According to Khon 2 News, the victim had been surfing in the “The Bowl” when a 13-foot tiger shark bit him.

Once he was pulled onto to the teen’s boat, the surfer, who also just happened to be a firefighter, calmly applied a tourniquet to the wound. He was brought to a nearby hospital to be treated for several lacerations to his leg. He is expected to recover. 

In response to the incident the popular beach was closed. Officials are warning beachgoers to be more vigilant than ever since this time of year is more prevalent for sharks. Today lifeguards will reevaluate the waters to see if the beach is safe for the public to access. 

The video is amazing ,thanks for posting.

In an interview, he was once asked what’s next on the list, and he replied, “get barreled.” When photographer Jeff Johnson heard that, he assembled an all star team—Mark Healey, Jon Rose, Keith Malloy, and Dan Malloy—to get Chin in

Kai Lenny and John John Florence Foil from Kaua’i to Oahu

Kai Lenny and John John Florence—I can’t think of a better crew to foil 200 nautical miles across the ocean. You’ve got Lenny, who’s a maniac on a hydrofoil, and then there’s Florence who’s now just as much of a sailor as he is a surfer. Apparently Florence is the one who came up with the wild idea to foil across the Kaua'i Channel in his 18-foot catamaran. It didn't much convincing to get Lenny to join. Still, these world champions aren’t infallible and the adventure pushed their limits.
