So I'm surfing the the 4th of July this year. Beach is packed. Lineup is getting crowded. I catch a wave into the shallows and a dude who looks like this is his first exposure to the sun in a while, surfboard under arm, says to me as he's getting into the water, "hey man, have you ever seen any sharks out here?". I tell him, "not yet today". Surprisingly he still paddled out haha.
