I was diving off the coast of Santa Barbara at Refugio Point Sept 1st when I was hit in the back, I thought it was my friends playing a joke on me. I lost grip of my speargun which I quickly retrieved and then it hit me. A HUGE great white which was at least 12ft long attacked me from the left side. It quickly circled around me and I used my speargun to keep it away.
Extremely lucky to get out of this one alive. I saw blood around me and wasn't sure where it was from, so I swam as fast as I could back to shore. Got a laceration on my right foot in the initial hit, I didn't realized the shark had bit me. The shark bite broke two of my toes.
Here is the aftermath of my toes:

THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T GO IN THE OCEAN!

Here are the creepiest, crawliest, and down-right ickiest creatures ever to swim the depths of the oceans. So, if you need me I'll be right here in the shallow end of the kiddie pool. Happy swimming, everybody!

DC presents Robbie “Maddo” Maddison’s “Pipe Dream,” giving the world a chance to witness history being made as Maddo rides his dirt bike on the powerful and iconic waves of Tahiti. From his helmet to motocross boots, Maddo was dressed for FMX when he took his dirt bike into the unchartered saltwater terrain of the Pacific Ocean in French Polynesia.

For nearly two years Robbie has been focused on making surfing on his motorbike a reality. His efforts paid off in Tahiti, where he rode the world famous waves at Teahupoo and Papara.
