Mick Fanning and Kelly Slater - Australian pro surfer Mick Fanning was attacked by a shark measuring 4-5 metres in length at the finals of the J-Bay Samsung Galaxy Open today (19Jun15). The shark bit through Fanning's leash, dragging him under water in front of a packed beach of spectators and fans. Fanning, ranked number 2 in world surfing this year, was waiting for his first wave of the finals against Australian surfer, Julian Wilson. Both surfers were immediately evacuated from the water and competition was stopped. This is world's first incident of a shark attack during an international surfing contest. Many of the best surfers in the world, including Gabriel Medina and Kelly Slater were in the same waters moments earlier. - Cape Town, South Africa - Sunday 19th July 2015

Writer-director Dana Brown clearly had a blast burning through the film's travel budget. From Hawaii to Vietnam to Easter Island, his crew captures some gorgeous footage of surfers at play (or at work, depending on how you look at it). Regardless of where he travels, surfers world-wide all share a childlike wonder at how much fun they get to have in the water. Off the coast of Galveston, Texas, Brown follows a group who find pleasure in surfing on the wakes of the massive supertankers that pass through; in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, he discovers a group of decidedly un-buff men cruising the modest tides of Lake Michigan, offering surfer-dude talk in Midwestern accents.
