Croc attack

Croc attack

My younger brothers surfboard after an encounter with a large saltie while surfing in Indonesia! Luckily he only came away with a few small holes in his arm and a board to tell the tale!

lol yeh unfortunaly it just missed the hooks I had trailing off his leg!

There was actually a report in the West Australian paper back years ago when it happened.

The croc had a couple snaps at the board getting my brothers arm in one and doing a roll with him before letting go. Lucky he didn't have his leg rope on and was able to swim back to shore minus the board! Got it later when it washed in. It wasn't until after that some local indonesians told them a croc lived there that had claimed a few lives!
