Zach Young, Australian Shark Attack Victim, Dies At Riecks Point Near Coffs Harbour, New South Wales

A shark killed a teenager off Australia's east coast Saturday in the nation's second deadly attack this month, police said.
Zach Young, 19, was body boarding with three friends about 100 meters (330 feet) offshore at Riecks Point, near the northern New South Wales city of Coffs Harbour, when he was bitten on the legs, New South Wales police said in a statement.

Young's friends got him back to the beach, and bystanders tried in vain to save him before paramedics arrived, a New South Wales ambulance police spokeswoman said. Young had serious injuries to his legs and suffered cardiac arrest. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him, but he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Beaches in the area were closed for 24 hours. There was no information immediately available on the type of shark involved.

It was the second deadly attack in Australia this month. On Nov. 23, a 35-year-old surfer was fatally mauled by a shark off a beach near the Western Australia community of Gracetown. Three surfers have been killed in Gracetown in the past decade.

Although sharks are common along Australia's coastlines, fatal attacks are relatively rare. The country has averaged just more than one fatal attack per year over the past 50 years.

Tom Carroll fala sobre o seu passado como toxicodependente


Tom Carroll é um dos maiores ícones do nosso desporto. Este surfista australiano foi por duas vezes campeão mundial da ASP e esteve muito perto de conseguir mais alguns títulos.

A sua marca no surf não passa só pelos seus títulos pois o legado de Tom ainda hoje é visivel. Carroll reinventou a noção de “power surfing”, mudou a maneira como se surfa Pipeline e venceu também o prestigioso Triple Crown of Surfing. Como se isso não chegasse era uma referência também no que tocava a preparação fisica, sendo durante muito tempo o competidor mais em forma do WCT.
Infelizmente os tempos que precederam o tour não lhe foram favoraveis e Tom passou de um uso recriacional de drogas para uma total dependência delas.

A seu favor teve o seu irmão que lhe deu todo o apoio e ajuda para abandonar essa vida. Hoje em dia já se encontra livre das drogas e deu esta impressionante entrevista ao famoso programa 60 minutos onde revelou tudo sobre o seu conturbado passado!


RISE UP: Episode 5 - Charging at any age

Life is not about living in the box & Nanna Lorraine is a testament to that. At 75+ she loves surfing, Jesus & baking cakes for all the hungry gromettes at our surf camps (who love to devour them!). We love Nanna Lorraine for the positive life giving woman she has been in so many of our young girls lives.
