    there's been a lot of talk recently about shark sitings in delmarva. I personally have never seen one in delmarva lineups.

    So you're saying crowds are a good thing. Probably so, because the more people around you the more the prospective diners have to choose from, thus lessening your chances of becoming dinner.

    About two weeks ago I was riding when people on the beach started freaking out. I turned around and saw a maroon/reddish fin criusing around just beside me. I caught the next wave in. I researched it and found out it was most likely a Sandbar shark (different then a sandshark)... the color of the fin had me really confused, but I was close enough to be sure of it. Other than that I haven't seen anything around here (delmarva), but Florida is a VERY different story.

    A bro of mine who has been in the water for years and lives in OC said that he saw a shark this Sat while we were in the water at Assateague. He thought it was a 4-5 footer... Didn't slow us down a bit...

    Shortly after session one we were treated to a school of dolphins surfing the break we were surfing -- they must have caught 6-7 waves before disappearing... Very cool.

    Yeah, I was surfing all day on Sat. at Assateague and saw dolphins a number of times. One time, as I was paddling back to the lineup, they were surfing in the wave as it breaking behind them. It was pretty sweet. Didn't see any sharks though.
