    I believe it, seen plenty at The Inlet down here, and when i'm on my SUP I see waaaaaaaay more. The water is typically very clear on the north side of the Inlet so tons of things to look at, south side is normally murky and where most bites occur, no surprise there. Seing 6-8 dolphin catch and ride a wave along side of me a couple weekends ago opened my eyes big time, as they just came out of nowhere, but one the coolest thing to ever happen to me in the water, thankfully they are the friendly type.

    Yep, it's part of what makes it such a cool place, not only that but sooo many dudes are afraid to paddle out there because they have heard it's the "shark bite capital of the world", so it helps with the crowds, which is what i love most.

    I'm pretty sure that picture is of a dolphin. Looks like the water is distorting the head and lower fin. Also I have never heard of a shark with that growth on the tip of the dorsal fin. All the dolphins around here have that algae dangling from their dorsals.

    i agree with zippy, half the people can't tell the difference, especially if they visit the ocean 1 week per year

    Looks like a dolphin to me... too much curve to the pectoral flippers to be the pectoral fins of a shark. Besides that, sharks don't surf!

    i can attest to that, a couple years ago i saw a 5-6 foot shark get hammered by a wave, and then a couple more...he got stuck in the impact zone and took a couple on the head..I was walking down 'cause there was a steady N drift, paddled right back out...i figured he learned his lesson.

    On the blown up photo in the link that dorsal thing I thought was algae looks a lot like the dorsal of a black tip.
