A kite surfer named Janek Lisewski became stranded during an attempt to cross the Red Sea fought off sharks with a pocket knife (talk about being tough)

He is a kite surfing champion from Poland, and was two-thirds of the way through a 124-mile trip between Egypt and Saudi Arabia when the wind died down and deflated his kite. He survived by drinking energy drinks and two energy bars.

He sent an SOS signal but the Saudi Arabian coast guard took their sweet time, 40 hrs to find him.

Janek was quoted as saying "I was stabbing them in the eyes, the nose and gills," That’s because he was amped up on Redbull!...duhhhh
