Shark attack halts competition at Honolua Bay
Competition at the Maui Pro has been called off after a 55-year old male surfer was attacked by a shark while surfing there at 7:45 am.
Competition would've begun at 8am, however it was first put on hold and later cancelled by WSL CEO Erik Logan who released an Instagram video.
The Maui Police Department has closed the coast from DT Flemming Beach Park all the way to Punalau Beach, or Windmills - approximately 5kms of coast.
The victim suffered injuries to his left side lower extremities. WSL safety crews quickly got to the man and transported him to shore where they began CPR.
On November 27th, a woman suffered severe injuries near S-Turns at Kahana, approximately 7kms southwest from Honolua Bay.
