Wow, a day for sharks!

Speedy recovery Liam!
Was Liam kiting at the time of the attack ?
Lucky boy, and a brave one too........get well very soon bud.
Liam was bitten by a small 4-5ft shark in shallow water.
49 puncture wounds !! and a few stitches. Speedy recovery mate.
BTW he was also stung by a bee on the way to wedge ! ouch
Unlucky mate. Heal up quick.
who was the guy who said it was more likely to be killed by a bee than a shark.
Liam had a tougn run of luck. Lucky he taste bad and the shark spat him out.
Get well quick. Some sweet bragging rights back at school. The only kid in school to have shark bite scars. High School chicks dig scars Lol!
See you on the water soon Liam.
Get well soon! Between this, the great white at leightons and jaws on tv.....feeling a little un easy about kiting tomorrow.
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
Those scars are going to get you so much tail. Use your new power wisely.
Well home now.
Great day up until the shark.
Thanks to Jeff, Ian and the wonderful nurses and doctors in the emergency room.
Back in the water on the 3rd if theres no problems with the recovery
some guy in Kallliiiforrrnia was not so lucky.. amputated leg and he died. Was in news yesterday.
hope you have speedy recovery..
****e, extremely lucky looks like the shark wasn't interested after he took a nibble!!
How far in were u when he grabbed you? Two of us were kiting a few kms south of wedge, assume you guys were coming up the coast??
ok this is just after we dumped the kite off him got him to the car and not knowing how bad it was ....warning there is blood and a lot of the swearing #%@*&^
that looks scary!
see you back in the water soon
r u getting any tv news coverage?
they might need to bleep out some of the audio, hehe
Holy crap, best wishes Liam, get well soon, J & C
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.
All the best mate.
Just think you will never need another chat up line again.
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.
The 22 stiches i got in me ear yesterday after board met head doesnt even freakin rate now! Was supposed to be at wedge this week end but had to do a wedding - not sure which choice would have been appropriate in hindsight Fark mate - get well soon!
should have sold that as exclusive footage to the tv stations & bought a new kite
Nah don't sell it to Current affairs, you know that Tracy Grimshaw will turn it into something against kiters the stupid slag...
no wonder there were ****all kiters out at wedge today
good to hear the kid is ok
where abouts at wedge did this happen ?
