I surf regularly at the point on BHI, NC. known as a sharky spot.
I paddle out a little past the sandbar (water is only about stomach deep), I see a 6-8 foot shark about 15-20 feet away from me inside the wave that is about to break in front of me.
I paddled in immediately, and I told some other kids not to paddle out there, but I walked down to the next sandbar and kept surfing.
Never saw a fin, and there were probably 35 people in the water, in and around the area.
Just curious what was the right thing to do. What would you have done?
