Red Sea Shark Fight

We've featured reports here on kiteworldmag.com of Polish kiter Jan Lisewski's crossing attempts before, but it seems with a recent attempt to cross the 124 miles of Red Sea, from El Gouna, Egypt to Duba in Saudi Arabia, he bit off more than he could chew. Stranded deep in the Red Sea when the wind dropped and drifting on his kite as a raft for 40 hours, Jan apparently fended off 11 shark attacks that went on 'all night.'
Here are two versions of the story we picked up on our 'news wires' this morning (office manager Anina came across them while while scanning the gossip columns over her morning tea break). The first is the hammed up 'shark fight' hero version from the Daily Mail. The second is the more sobering version by Hurghada's internationally recognised NGO, HEPCA, specialising in the field of marine and land conservation.
