    Mclovin, quit keeping old Joe from eating. And to be honest...I'm more worried about jellyfish than sharks (got stung twice within an hour of the first sting on sunday) I bumped into a 5ft at cocoa beach and everything is fine. Sharks mostly keep to themselves if there's enough food and you're not near their breakfast. Just watch the water more when you're doing dawn patrol.

    Betty, bring a friend, cuts your chances down to 50%.

    The 'ol - You don't have to out paddle the shark, just your friend.

    Thanks McLovin, dawn patrol SUP and Indirect, nice to hear from the Florida boys that really no need to worry anymore than daylight surfing. The inlet comment makes sense. I can't wait to surf at dawn. Antoine, I think you know my girl who will def be up for this she is a wild woman!

    Yeah but you should see her on that sponge. She charged up a 7' wave, took the drop, did a 360, it was a thing of beauty and took my breath away!

    exactly. an abundance of hand-wringing threads about sharks lately, but this is what it comes down to: a shark attack is a statistically insignificant risk. i'm too lazy to google it, but i'd bet it's comparable to the odds of getting struck by lightening on a golf course. if these kind of odds bother you, take up bowling.
