This Shark Attack Survivor Didn’t Let His Attack Keep Him From the Water


Mike Coots is a surfing enthusiast who never expected his life to change so dramatically at the age of eighteen. In this video, you will hear about the story of how he started out surfing like normal and was attacked by a tiger shark who took his leg. Although he had to go through a great amount of healing and adjustment, this allowed him to experience life anew, never giving up on his dreams of continuing his passion for surfing.

When he received his prosthetic leg, he knew he had to get back in the water as soon as he could. He worked to develop a foot for his prosthetic that would allow him to properly surf. Soon, he was back on his board and in his element! He now continues to enjoy surfing and is even an instructor. The shark may have taken his leg, but it would never take away his love of adventure.
