Karl Stefanovic’s favourite Gold Coast bros Shaun and Dean Harrington, 27, of The Mad Hueys – whose ethos is “about getting up in the morning and looking out the window and saying ‘I’m the maddest Huey in this joint, no barney, no wave, no fish, no boat, no rode, no person, no party can stop us’” – tempted fate and cheated death over the weekend when they decided to go shark diving off the coast of Coolangatta with only a $50 bird cage for protection. Life choices! You can probably guess what happened next.
“It was heavy – [it] scared the shit out of me and I thought I was a goner. We were just having fun but it turned crazy,” reflected Shaun, according to The Telegraph. “We surf every day and never really see any sharks but we definitely won’t be doing anything as stupid as this again. My girlfriend said ‘no more – no more sharks!’” No, probably not hey.
