If you haven't already heard the news, 3 x World Champion Mick Fanning dodged a bullet last night!  Just a couple of minutes into the final of the J Bay Pro in South Africa, Mick was knocked off his board by a shark while sitting in the line-up. What looks to have saved him is the fact that the shark got tangled in his legrope instead of making a direct lunge at his board.  There must have been only centimetres in it.  So glad Mick's ok - that has to be Pro Surfing's scariest moment! If still feel enticed to go surfing this morning, there's some fun waves about.  It's 3ft+, clean, fast and hollow.

James aka J Train is taking a group to trek the infamous Kokoda Trail in PNG later this year.  If Kokoda is on your bucket list, I couldn't think of a better person to do it with.  Click through for the details.
