Surfing Central California. Any suggestions on how to keep pinnipeds away.
Sure fire way
Yes, strap some bloody steaks to your legs. Seals and the like will surely keep their distance...
Hope this helps!
vicious...wear your shark costume...
haha no real way. They like to mess with u to. If it was closer to end of summer/beginning of fall you'd really have to watch it cause the mating season is starting and the bulls get real aggressive.
Watch out for the killer lampreys!
If they get within 4 ft, this might work:
Is this your attempt at humor, Feel-low? Lame thread begets lame post-ups from Feel-low.
BTW, why do you feel the need to tell everyone that you're a 'surfer' in your stupid moniker?
And sisurfdogg, that lamprey movie thing was freaky as heck. I was annoyed when they took out the dog.
you can really tell the funniest people on here work for a living and dont post so much on weekends
One time oscar from peru was blocked from paddling off a boat by a sea lion at san gallan.
he whacked it with a right cross to the jaw and away it went. evidently it wasn't the first time.
You could try a board with a pointier nose than this guy:
Help me out here guys. What's the danger with these little fellers? I've had a few pop up near me and they're always very cordial.
I probably wouldn't sweat them unless I was paddling out through a rookery or it was mating season. They're curious and smart. I would venture a guess that people get bitten by sea lions less frequently than sharks, but I have no scientific data to back that up.
The only problem with them is that wherever they are, Whitey is prolly lurking somewhere nearby.
I have had a couple run-ins with them in Southern CA before. Usually, they don't do anything, but what i will tell you is DON'T fu** with them if its mating season, or if they are eating. There was one sitting in the waves with me for about an hour one day in the summer. I thought it was cool. He kept ducking under water as I would ride towards him. A little while later, he emerged from the water with a HUGE fish in his mouth and he was gnawing on it... Next wave I took, I went right at him, he stood his ground and let out a very mean grunting sound. I jumped over the back and bailed, and this guy sat with the fish in his mouth, swiveling around making really aggressive noises. At that point, I knew not to fu** with him. He made it loud and clear that if I messed up his lunch, he and I were going to have a tussle.
