    Wait, so you guys actually see rays launch and like, catch air? I've seen giant mantas, I've seen gulfodemex brown rays, an I've been jabbed twice by whatever's under my feet out here; but I have never seen a ray out of the water except on the end of a line. Do they really jump, please explain?

    Yeah dude, happens all the time round these parts, I see it about 50% of the time I go out, never really big ones, usually the small guys, but occasionally you'll see a larger one boost some air

    And if said ray snakes you or dropped in off the shoulder to punt that biotch, do you grab him by the tail and chomp his eye out? I would! Then I'd go straight to a taxidermist of stuff the sucka.

    SUPplies!! What else jumps out of the ocean in your parts? I may have to head down for a break meet-up (friendly of course!) to catch some waves and some marine life that's got a penchant for altitude.

    Funny you should ask, yesterday my wife and I went out on a buddies boat with him and his wife. His boat is just a little larger than my SUP (barely exaggerating), he decides that he's going to "chum up the water" with this huge chum block he picked up, I thought to myself, this is going to get real interesting.... well, it didn't take long and I had hooked a 3-4 foot bonnet head shark at the same time that his wife hooked a 3 foot lemon head shark. While we were in the middle of unhooking them another shark, more in the 6-7ft range came flying out of the water and landed within two feet of the boat and made quite the splash. This all happened in a matter of 30 seconds to a minute. Then after let em both go, that was it... NO BS, it was awesome to witness, but I couldn't help but wonder what would have happened if that big mutha decided to land in the boat, it would have certainly changed the outcome of this story...

    They've clearly been riding dirty with jerseyplaya and getting pinned on the reg with gruvi. I'd say pier shotting is next.

    So was Steve Irwin victim to an airborne ray?

    If there were a #3 on the list, it would be "punt over the lip".
