Seth Mead had come across sharks before while surfing and managed to make a hasty retreat before any damage could be done. One day while resting on his board waiting for a suitable wave a shark lunged up and took a chunk out of his leg. Fortunately this shark did not choose to shake and rip at Seth’s leg and probably gave him what was a playful nip in shark trms but incredibly painful for humans. Seth escaped with rather nasty flesh wound.
