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.

Professional Athletes Get Scared Too

Professional Athletes Get Scared Too

When we think of professional athletes, we don't often associate them with the word 'afraid'. But even professional athletes get scared when trying new things. For surfer Jojo Roper and climber Nina Williams, hanging out with each other means getting a little out of their comfort zones. For Williams, who is the only woman to send six different highball boulder projects on Earth, topping out a 50-foot wall is way more inviting than hanging out in the ocean. For San Diego surf king Jojo Roper,
