A man has survived a shark attack by punching it in the face.
Scott Stephens was surfing off the coast of Eureka, California on Tuesday 30th October when a great white shark pulled him underwater.
The 25-year-old then punched the animal several times before it let go.
He was described to be in “fair” condition by doctors – although he sustained at least seven deep lacerations, his vital organs were fine.
Stephens was thankful to the strangers on the coast who helped him, as well as to the operating doctors.
He added that the incident hasn’t put him off surfing when he fully recovers.
Basque surfer Kepa Acero is at the forefront of the relatively new breed of self-documenting surf filmmakers, and his solo missions to far flung places like India, Patagonia, and Africa, all filmed and edited by him, are quite captivating.
