not to be the jinx guy, but I would have to guestimate that with quite a bit more or surfable coastline, than VA Beach, the state of Maryland has "zero" fatal or recordable shark attacks. ZERO! not to jinx anyone, but whether you study the coastlines contours off OBX which is close to VB, or the end of the bay mouth or what have you.... There have been zero attacks in MD waters... EVER.... so as far as the numbers game goes, there are mnay moer tourists in the water in MD than in Virginia.... but no attacks... the bulls must like the shallows off the deeper northern NC coastline..... any ideas? other than the fact that the shark numbers game is nothing but a crapshoot game of luck?
