There was a Shark attack in Balian, Northwest of Bali this morning. It was not a severe attack and luckly the person attacked is okay.
Balian is located around 2 hours drive on the North West Coast of Bali from Ngurah Rai airport and has been a popular surf break when the swell is in the smaller range due to its south facing coast.

Turns out he was a paramedic, damaged hand and a fracture also. Big thanks to Brett (Big Bird) Hodge for all the tips back in the day about keeping ya heart rate steady, it was a long paddle in from 500m out to sea”
