    not to be the jinx guy, but I would have to guestimate that with quite a bit more or surfable coastline, than VA Beach, the state of Maryland has "zero" fatal or recordable shark attacks. ZERO! not to jinx anyone, but whether you study the coastlines contours off OBX which is close to VB, or the end of the bay mouth or what have you.... There have been zero attacks in MD waters... EVER.... so as far as the numbers game goes, there are mnay moer tourists in the water in MD than in Virginia.... but no attacks... the bulls must like the shallows off the deeper northern NC coastline..... any ideas? other than the fact that the shark numbers game is nothing but a crapshoot game of luck?

    the warm, nutrient-rich waters of the gulf stream run very close to shore along the outer banks & the various shoals force branches & off-shoots of that warm water even further in to shore, providing the sea critters w/ a very abundant food source. more small critters=more medium size critters=more large, toothy critters that occasionally chomp on those land mammals that wander into the food chain to play (aka: us surfers & swimmers).

    Get a grip.............
    grip well in hand, trust me. but there is a macabre facination in discussing the creature that may violently & unexpectedly remove you from the gene pool.

    everyone seems to be ignoring this giant elephant in the room, so i'm going to say it: bull****. no f--king way is this anything approaching truth. fluffy is not that kind of predator.

    oh, & ragdolling, my father got a nasty MRSA infection from a reef cut in panama a while back. watch that wound carefully!

    The hell with great whites, we have our very own Loch ness in the Atlantic, the news has named it Shag-nasty. There have been 4 sitings this summer along the DE and NJ coast. The reports say it is about 20 feet long and is usually seen in the evening close to the shore. WATCH OUT!!!
