The Mike Coots Story

Amputee surfer, shark-attack survivor

Rather than let the loss of a leg torment his life after a harrowing shark encounter, Mike Coots turned the situation around entirely. Here, the shark-protection activist and amputee surfing pioneer looks back on what could have easily ended his life. He still admits that the attack has been the greatest thing to have ever happened to him, and he’s out to prove that life on a surfboard isn’t limited to those with two legs.
