It’s the absolute worst when you’re catching air on a freshly waxed board and you’re suddenly hit by what feels like a freight train that turns out to be a shark, promptly bitten in multiple place by this shark, and forced to desperately swim to safety. #JustSurferThings, amirite dudes? ...Dudes?
Well, 40-year-old Florida surfer Donald Walsh would know exactly what I’m talking about. Walsh experienced this painful surfer plight at Volusia County’s New Smyrna Beach on Tuesday morning while catching some air.
"Took a wave, one thing I never do," Walsh told Orlando’s WKMG-TV. "I never really try to throw an air but I tried to throw one. Didn't land it, landed on a shark instead and he decided to take a bite out of me."
