Mick Fanning just might be the unluckiest surfer there is.
The Australian athlete returned to the water a week after being attacked by a shark on live television. But when he got in, history threatened to repeat itself.
In a sneak peek for an upcoming segment with 60 Minutes Australia, Fanning is shown scrambling to get on a Jet Ski after spotting another shark in the water.
“There he is, straight out. I just saw it,’’ he tells the journalist.
The back-to-back scares can’t keep the world-class athlete out of the ocean, though.
According to The Courier Mail, Fanning’s confidence about getting back into the water is returning more and more “each and every day.”
He will participate in the World Surf League Billabong Pro Tour next month in Tahiti, where he is the defending champion.
