I was out today...Early this morning... Waiting on a descent set to come.. Saw air bubbles coming up in front of me.. Thought of this thread, freaked me out! Started paddling backwards, saw the bubbles again about 6 foot in front of me. Seaweed floating around me.. One surfer to my left just catches a dinky wave.. I'm on a body board thinking S***.. Shouldn't of read this crap haha.. Needles to say I moved down but didn't go in. I have been going out for so many years... needless to say I am still paranoid everytime.
get out of the water....it's a home for sharks and other nasties.
