The 34-year-old described the moment he realized the shark was behind him as terrifying, saying: ‘I was waiting for the teeth to come at me.’

Footage, released by the World Surf League (WSL), who organised the event, shows the shark’s fin emerge from the water before following Mr Fanning as he paddled out of the shallows.

The three-time world champion, who was competing against fellow Australian Julian Wilson in the final, can be seen being knocked off his board before he attempts to use it as a shield to stop the shark biting him.  More   Watch video at Nutty News Videos
