Just back from hospital, as shark bites go he's a lucky lad, after watching it all being cleaned out and stitched a ****ing brave one to, thanks to spot 1, kip and the staff at joondalup health campus. He slipped off his strapless surfboard in the shallows while turning to go back out, felt a tug on his leg and saw the bronzey before he new it his kite was in the water and the noah had gone, very lucky to be close to shore.

Geez bad luck Liam hope you have a speedy recovery so you can get back on the water soon and get them gybes sorted. Obviously your old man must have been on his tt or strapped otherwise he would have been floundering around heaps and got bitten instead

That video is great. Classic ozi footage. "What happened? I got bitten by a shark" That could be sold to one of those dodgey current affairs shows. You deserve a new kite out of it.

Liam, All the best mate. Just think you will never need another chat up line again. "Hi, My name is Liam I kite, and I have shark bite scars. Your place or mine." Looks like we will have some show and tell at Mullers for the BBQ.
