    Perhaps... but if they are teething or curious (i.e., taste testing), not a pleasant outcome.

    Mehhh, I’d have patted him like oBarry said... make him a mascot of the break and name him Squishy! Rub his nose alittle, rile him up, then punch the shitbag SUPsurfer paddling over the nose of my bort in the face and paddle away really fast.

    Here we go again.

    There’s already news stories about the seal issue and how the locals are now saying their more protected than the people...
    Ummmmmmm.... what's the news story? It’s been like that since 72’ - just now a problem for them cause Sharkey shark is hanging around now.
    It will be interesting to see what kind of solutions are offered that actually make sense and could work. IF there are any offered. Needless to say, these dudes are here to stay as long as there’s a smorgasbord.
    I love winter surfing

    Badass to the bone. I’d like to have one of those boats to clear the lineup at Trestles & any other crowded break. :D

    Easter Eve once i drove all night to my favorite spot, so to be there by first light. Alone with super clean shoulder highs. Perfect fun for me. And then hey, what's with that shadow moving all around? First thought was, get da fu*k out of the water. But no way man, didn't drive all the way here to surf this morning at this place to get chumped by some dumb shark.
    So that's the way it was, surfing alone with BIG SHARK, swimming by a lot, and didn't care.
    Then i looked at the pier and someone had put a cross on it, weird. Then i looked at the beach and saw a cross there to, weird. Now the surrealism is hitting hard and i thought was gonna die right then for sure! Outta the water i go, up on the beach, watching the shark swimming.
    That was a good Easter.

    Weird thing is, haven't stressed anything since booking the trip.
    No cares about bla bla bla's.
    Going swimmin' the deep with sharks is some kinda dope.

    I get it bruddah. Everyone needs something to keep them on the edge. What's the saying? Keep your friends close and your enimees closer?

    The place I stayed at on Eleuthera in the Bahamas years ago had a boat launch carved out of the rock on the edge of the property. The cook at the restaurant would clean fish there and reef sharks like that would appear and do just about the same thing in inches of water to get the fish scraps.
