Surfer Mick Fanning just had a harrowing experience during the J-Bay Open competition in South Africa. He was approached by what appears to be two sharks, who knocked him off his board.

"I was just sitting there and I felt something just get stuck in my leg rope, and I was kicking trying to get it away," Fanning told Fox Sports shortly after the terrifying experience. "I just saw fins. I was waiting for the teeth."

Speedboats were despatched to pick him up, and the surfer escaped without any injury. Check out the footage:
