The 18-year-old was surfing with school friends when the animal attacked.

BIMC emergency department nurse Romi Putu, who treated the youngster, said there did not appear to be any nerve or tendon damage.
He was released yesterday and spent the afternoon relaxing in a motel room, watching videos with a friend.

The Ulladulla High School graduate is booked to return to Australia on December 15.
