    damn. thats wild. thats aweful.

    My curious side is wondering what affects the lightening strike had on the other individuals in the surrounding area in the water. I wonder if the surfers got minor electrical shocks from the lightening as well. It sounds like since the swimmer was fully submerged when it struck, that he took on 100% of the shock. I'm curious as to what the other felt while they were out there. I wonder what kind of a diameter in the water a stike of lightneing would affect. interesting, but tragic.

    NCsurfer:

    This is to you and only you. You are a pathetic piece of crap. No, this is not the trash talking I usually see on here. It is an observation from an actual intelligent human being with a heart, to a heartless piece of trash. You are the only kook on here after a comment like that man.

    If anyone who knows the guy who was struck, or his family and read that comment, please disregard what that ignoramus NCsurfer has written. And to you NCsurfer, as they say, karma is a B&*#h.

    a friend of mime was actually about two streets down in the water when the bolt struck this guy... your never think it will happen... then it does.. i was out of town when this happened. i don't know what the sky was like or how the weather was when it happened.. but be careful everyone. im sure no body was really expecting that bolt. Scary stuff.

    So, were any of the surrounding surfers affected by the bolt? I am just curious about the amount of power distributed through the water when this happened. In a strange situation like this, I think we could all learn something from it. Other than the obvious point of not being in the water during a thunderstorm. If anyone has heard a scientific break down of the incident or from someone who was very close, I would love to know.

    The I surf better than you comment was taken way outta context, but I guess that's nothing new. Where did I condone laughing at fellow humans death? I didn't. The only thing I said that MIGHT have been a stretch was the holier than thou comment.


    I wan't trying to get a rise out of anyone ct

    wow this is classy.....


    ps: A lighting bolt can strike up to a mile away from the storm sometimes, so just because you do not see the storm doesn't mean that you cant be struck.
