This is it? This is the shark attack everybody is talking about? I mean I’ve been waiting for like 10 years for somebody to get eaten by a Great White and this is what I get? I guy getting a bug bite on is foot? Didn’t even rip it off? Some people say they saw a shark fin? They didn’t even close the damn beach? Umm worst shark attack ever bro. Like I’m not even convinced he got bitten by a shark. Maybe a marlin or a stingray…definitely a game fish, but shark my ass.
