Looks like the shark week hysteria has begun..
Live every day like it's Shark Week.
I'm really going to miss those old summer pros.....
It must be a shocking experience, I guess it's just part of the risk, dunno if I would return to the waters if I still could after an attack.
some dude just got his ankle taken by a white off cape cod yesterday
my buddy got tagged on the heal about 10 years ago. he RARELY goes in the ocean these days.
Headed to the Cape on Monday. Was going to bring my speargun in addition to my boards to try to spear dinner. Having second thoughts now. Knew it was just a matter of time with all those seals and shark sightings
I live/surf on the Cape. Guy in Truro barely nicked and I think shark mighta hit him and realized it wasnt food. If shark wanted him, shark would have had him. Beach he was on has pretty slow pitch and dude was far off shore body surfing. Be there Sat with my fingers crossed an good luck stuff....
This is the same spot where that body boarder kid was recently killed is it not?
That's a spooky spot right there.
new on surf-line this am.
found this video about the guy who was killed this past Tuesday.
This will keep you updated on all shark attacks around the world.
every couple of years someone gets eaten by a great white in Surf, CA. The place is very isolated - it sticks way out into the pacific and faces northwest, picking up the hugest swells the pacific can deliver. The waves are about 2-3 times bigger than the surrounding area and there's a very large, shark attracting rivermouth just to the north. It's also usually onshore, foggy, overcast and just downright scary...even without the great white population. I don't know why people still surf there.
not exactly begging the question but.....
you answered your own question
It would gives me t creeps to paddle out there... But I can understand why people would still surf at a spot that is bigger and less crowded than others
Yikes, another one???
8 unprovoked shark attacks in 2012? Time to cull the herd. Like it or not... Land, air and see we're the top of the food chain one way or another.
Maybe an open season for a couple weeks out of the year would end this trend. To make it fair, you can only use human shaped bait so we catch repeat offenders. Maybe we could send an open letter to the Mexican drug lords that keep dumping bodies at sea and ask them to stop so we're not considered a food source anymore.
I already hear you human hating animal lovers telling me we're in their environment. You're right. But there is a reason man eating, predatory animals were killed off in this country. Because it hurts when they bite you! Wolves are being reintroduced in many areas in the country and they're back at their wolfing ways eating livestock and posing a threat to human. They can't help it but they can't stop it either. Cull the herd.
At the very least open up a fishing season like they do for Grouper and let us get the population back in order. They say they are endangered, I say BS...
