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.

This GoPro Award-winning video comes to us from four-time kitesurfing world champion Keahi De Aboitiz, who clearly is a pretty good normal surfer as well. He catches a beautiful right-hander during the storm swell from Cyclone Oma earlier this year. Somehow, he manages to dodge several people in the lineup for a 70-second ride.  Related: Surfer and Jetskier Narrowly Escape Disaster at Nazare De Aboitiz's camera comes equipped with GoPro's newest HyperSmooth technology, but the wave and his
