    I was thinking the strenuous sport of Dungeons and Dragons is more the OP's speed... maybe foosball if he's really hard core.

    Come on guys, give him a break.

    Don't forget- he's a pianist. A pianist without gonads.

    Sharks are all over the florida coast. Especially in the spring/fall when there are even more in the water migrating.

If you're in shark central be aware of course, but if you're looking at a nicely breaking wave and worrying about sharks...maybe this sport isn't for you.

    They may be concentrated in places like SI and New Smyrna but they are everywhere. Largest tiger shark ever caught was off the Cherry Grove pier in N Myrtle Beach, and that's not exactly a hot spot for sharks.

    Relax bro - I surf in Jersey and don't have to really worry about sharks there. I was just asking for some opinions and trying to play it safe

    Virginia Beach. No waves. No undertow. The biggest danger is stepping in a hole and disappearing.

    I've surfed in Florida numerous times and have seen many sharks, but the biggest one I have ever seen was in Jersey...no bs.
