Speculation, horror, daze, disbelief have rattled our world of surfing in the last 24 hours.

Was it a shark encounter or a shark attack? Was it the bright colored board that attracted the curiosity of the Great White? Was there one or were there two sharks?

Amidst this murky land of what ifs, one thing is for sure. Mr. White Lightning is safe and out of trouble. Regardless of who comes out on top at the end of this year, it will clearly be Fanning’s time to celebrate.

The surf community has come alive online, expressing comic relief, gratefulness and blessings for the life and safety of our hero. Here are some of the best from the last 24 hours.
