Thread: Sharks and you

  1. #1

    Sharks and you

    This is a important question all of us surfers need to ask ourselves.

    If a shark attacks someone in the lineup are you going to paddle over and help them or are you going to swim to shore?

    I surf with a Tourniquet in my pocket ( shoe laces ) it's also a good weapon.

    I would like to think if sh*t hits the fan and the water turns red from a brown tip to Great White I'm coming for you. So next time you stink eye someone in the lineup, remember they might have their eye on you.

    To set your mind at ease remember sharks usually bite once and get scared off if other surfers paddle over

    I was with swimmers and sharks showed up, I did not ditch them, I let them hang off my board and we swam to shore together, I was yelling at them to help paddle because they froze up.

    Two men were walking through the woods when a large bear
    walked out into the clearing no more than 50 feet in front of them.
    The first man dropped his backpack and dug out a pair of running
    shoes, then began to furiously attempt to lace them up as the bear
    slowly approached them. The second man looked at the first,
    confused, and said, "What are you doing? Running shoes aren't
    going to help, you can't outrun that bear." Replied the first man, "It's not the bear I need to outrun"...

    Cool surfers always chum the waters where other surfers are surfing.
    Population control. Culling the herd........of moronic surfers.

    if it happens while I'm in the water,il probably catch a wave towards the guy getting eaten and jump off my board and do a roundhouse kick to the sharks noggin.

    after I knock the shark out with 1 kick,il throw him on my shoulder and paddle in

    You do realize your leash works better as a tourniquet than shoelaces....

    I've been out when a guy got tugged under by a shark getting caught up in his leash. Saw that he was ok, and caught a couple waves before paddling in.

    I prefer shoelaces, the water proof kind, I feel like I can get them tighter than a leash

    Have you ever used a tourniquet before? You are supposed to use a stick wrapped in the tourney and twist that vs. just tying it in a knot to actually stop the bleeding
