Elio Canestri, 13, was attacked while surfing with seven others off the French holiday island of Reunion.
Witnesses described the Elio being flung around the water as the shark bit into his stomach. The shark tore off the child's arms, legs and part of his stomach, before dragging him out to sea.
Hundreds of people gathered on a beach to pay tribute to the 13-year-old surfing champion.
Surfers around the world will never forget you....
