I'll admit it: looking at the shark tracking website is a bit unsettling. Fascinating, tho.
Of course, these things have been cruising around underneath us for as long as there have been surfers walking into the Atlantic. But still...I never really thought about them like I do now. In 25' of water. Argh.
It won't stop me from surfing, of course. But honestly there's times when I pull up my hands & feet instead of sitting, when I'm in the ocean by myself. Probably useless but what do they say.....honor the feeling, trust your gut.
How many more of these critters are they gonna tag?
when the waters clearish I spot bulls and other toothy bastards grabing waves damn near every surf even shared a few waves with them. Back in november just north of pawleys I was out soloing in dark muddy waters after just catching a wave i popped out and started to paddle back out when about 30 feet away I noticed a grey dorsal fin the size of my torso moving away from me in about chest to neck deep water. As if it had followed me toward shore to see what was up. safe to say I called it a day from there.
we are on there stomping ground they just wanna ride some waves too.
