Derek Hynd first one to paddle out at J Bay after Mick Fannings shark encounter.

…I waited an hour…

Derek Hynds paddles out on an 11’6 finless merely 60 minutes after Mick Fannings Shark Encounter. Apparently the empty line up and perfect waves overshadowed the fact a fairly large great white had just passed through. Peter King caught up with Derek on the beach and our crazy Aussie friends Stab captured it all. Heres an excerpt.

DH: “Yeah I watched it on the net.”

PK: “And thought that might be a good time to go surf?”

DH: “No not at all…I waited an hour”

There you have it folks!
