I kinda expected a balloon style instance which would have had him charging off very quickly in random directions.

 Hobie Revolution kayak. Looks like the shark chomped right near the seat are too .

Unusual for a Tiger Shark to attack like that. Some people thinking the bite holes are more White Shark like.

Effing nasty episode that!
