Brit doctor punches 'great white shark' that tried to rip his arm off surfing in Oz

Surfer injured in Avoca

A young British doctor has described punching a shark that leapt from the water to attack him as he surfed off Australia's eastern coast, escaping with bite marks to his shoulder and arm.

Dr Fry said he had been inspired by Mick Fanning, the champion Australian surfer who fought off a shark on live television while taking part in an global surfing competition in South Africa in 2015.

"I didn't feel the teeth going in, it felt like I was smacked, it felt like a hand, a hand grabbing me, shaking me", he said, calling the attack a "close call".

Fry added: "If you are watching or listening, Mick, I owe you a beer".

The 36-year-old was temporarily pulled underwater as the thrashing apex predator turned on him in the notoriously sharky waters of Eastern Cape.

Fry later told Nine News his mother laughed off the shark attack while his father was a little more concerned.

"I was out surfing and I got this massive thud on my right-hand side; it completely blindsided me", Fry said.

He sustained scratches and puncture wounds, and was driven to hospital by his two friends who were both doctors as well.

"It was a nervous swim in, with my bleeding arm", he said. It kept coming at my board and I was kicking and screaming, ' Fanning said in the aftermath of the attack in 2015.

The man was surfing with three others 20m-40m offshore when it jumped out of the water and hit him in the right shoulder about 4pm (Monday 13 November 2017).

Fry said he could not return to the ocean for a week due to his injuries, but "after then, I'll be racing to get back in". The beach at Avoca was closed by authorities, who said they are closely monitoring surrounding beaches.
