If you read how many shark attacks there have been in Thailand total, it would surprise me there where any sharks around the beach in Hua Hin, and I have been snorkeling, freediving and diving alot in thai bay area, and on west coast, also with sharks.

No confusion here was a rock we have them in Australia as well some can be up to 6 meters in length. Some are that sharp they have been known to remove body parts

You have sharks there that remove body parts too :), snakes that can make you wince and jellyfish that have one helluva sting, i have to say that when swimming in Australia, it wasn't the rocks that I was looking out for :)

I was being sarcastic. Yes funnel Web spiders, red back spiders, salt water crocodiles, stone fish, blue ring octopus,  a whole range of snakes, bull tiger and great white sharks, 8 of the 15 deadliest snakes in the world. Even out gum trees can kill you

For your information, so is the sea full of sharks, but it is very rear they attack people, specialy in Thai water. I have snorkelled, freedived, and dived with sharks, and see them quite often, unfortanly more before than later. 

 

We just have to wait and see pics of him after surgery and fixed up, and let the doctors and him tell the story. It would be one in trillion if this is a attack.

How can you say it is an attack? Have you seen people hurt on the rocks in Hua Hin before? I have, and it is nasty, and if he got taken by the current at the same time, and got his foot tvisted, it is likely the same injuries he have now. The rocks are sharp as teeths. I have no interest of denying an shark attack, it is just I have seen the resoults of the injury people have gotten from those rocks before. If it is a sharkbite, then wow, it is very rear happens. Just to say one more time.

Similar odds to winning lottery. But it happens every week. marks look very clean deep both sides of foot broken bones. Would be a hell of a impact to do that on rocks no matter how sharp. Rodney fox has dived many times also have you seen he's scars 

Bull sharks are reasonably common in warm waters and quite aggressive. I'd say the odds of that type damage on rocks no matter how sharp are higher than getting bitten by a shark.

Bull sharks are also called Zambezi sharks, they can survive in fresh water and travel far up in the Zambezi river and have killed domestic animals and also humans there, they are also present in Lake Nicaragua, they are reported to swim close to the shore and in big rivers.

If I didn't know any better I'd say that's a Bull Shark bite.

Amazing what a little knowledge of sharks can do.

 

"An aggressive bull shark is believed to be the culprit."
