    A lot of shark threads lately. I've seen a few of them in Southern California, and even a couple in Jersey. I got real close to one in Imperial Beach, and then the next day it was the same thing. I probably pissed myself a little bit, but what the hell? It's the ocean right?

    Last weekend I was paddling out in Cocoa Beach and my hand bumped a shark when paddling in. Don't think I've ever swam that fast in my life after that. As soon as I felt the skin and looked down and saw it I was gone lol.

    Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship.

    "Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people. "First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing."
    And they did.
    "Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing."
    And they did.
    "Now we eat everybody." And they did.
    When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?"
    His wise father replied, "Because they taste better without the sh*t inside!"

    Watch todays news. Fishermen got really cool video of a big great white swimming around the boat. Approx 30 miles SE of AC.
    I've had a big white next to the boat when shark fishing a couple of times. It's incredible. Sucks for fishing (nothing's around when whitey's there), but it's awesome to see up close.

    Last century I was alone at Nags Head pier when a gray animal, no dorsal fin, with a spoon shaped tail porpoised next to me. I looked in the encyclopedia (Before Computers) and it was indeed a Manatee
    Saw one this morning while body surfing in 6 ft or so of water north of Poles...never have seen one before in the ocean... weird/ unexpected...took the next on to the inside sand bar...took a minute to figure out what it was

    I love getting locked into lil' barrels with my hand plane and churchills...but bobbing around a ways out in the water in North Florida can be unsettling sometimes...Sharky is an accurate description... Trust your gut

    You know, I'm not buying some of the bravado displayed on the internet over here. Just not buying it.

    Like, a huge South African, shark week, dorsal fin appears 10 yards away and SUP dudes are paddling at it? While the rest of the dudes just hang out uneffected? Dude, that whole line-up would have cleared the F out.

    Also all of this, " Oh I just lift my hands and feet out of the water," stuff is ridiculous. They see your board, fellas. The bigger sharkies want a satisfying meal, they think you are seal or turtle. They ain't searching for limbs. They think your board resembles their favorite foods.

    Yeah, your board will protect you. It's a real barrier. Just hide your feet. Problem solved.

    I do belive there is some psuedo-machismo going down on the internet here. Jeez, now I'm not be insultive, but most of y'all don't even surf by yourselves. That sketches most of y'all out. And now everybody's fearless of one of earth's most profificient hunters.

    Yeah, I'm not buying it. I think practically everybody on here would be hightailing back to shore if they even thought "shark."
