Aren't sharks less likely to attack when you see them?

They like to surprise you?


incompetence is preferable to malice.

My grandma used to say that if you see a shark, it's letting you see it.

Apex predators with thousands of years of experience, if they wanted to eat us - they could do it at anytime. They know where we always are, we can't swim at any decent speed and there's millions of us. I think they just don't like us. Too many hard bones.

More people more ooportunity

I grew with them and their legends
my home break SC was named for them
mostly hammers though
which weirdly we favored versus the pointed nose ones
we used to eat them after soaking them in milk to get rid of the smell
not the best tasting but it was food
no worse than a blackened leather shinned palani on the bbq
we'd catch them inadvertently with our lay nets so we forced ourselves to eat them
sometimes we'd hang the big ones in front of the paddle out spot
just to remind folks of how the spot got its name

funny as we were never scared especially with your home right there
that is until we saw the movie jaws
then paddling out in the dark was just too much like that opening scene
and of course some punk cousin would start humming that song
been chased in surfing with friends or worse solo many times
seen people freak out screaming especially kids and girls when surprised by one

had a couple lineup pals lose chunks in various places and others just dissappear forever
in the old days people just dissappeared you just find signs they were out

Pu'uloa next to pearl harbor where the big ones live
google it

they always hit you from behind/below as you paddle back out they aren't stupid
they are hunter killers and that's how you hunt
they also size up their prey
so if you are ocean aware you should get a feel that they are sizing you up for food
some of my lineup elders said they could smell when one was around

but watching them come at you from the outside
or watching one go after someone from the side
is enough to make you sh*t your pants
saw allot of near miss side hits at diamondhead (the water's deep outside the break) back in the 70's
especially with the guys scratching in from the outside and you can see the mano
in the wave accelerating towards the paddler

there's nothing you can do
once they decide to commit to eat you

Like Race said
when a shark shows his himself to you
it's a warning
he's telling you it's time and giving you a chance to go in
if you want to challenge him then fine
they'll only be one winner
some people are clueless
but most water people or people who spend allot of time by themselves hanging in the lineup
will know when things just don't feel right.

in the old days
maybe from the drugs
but we used to rub the dead babies on the bottom of our boards like wax
because someone said it would make our boards faster and we would become better surfers
some say it worked for a while
i don't know
we did all kinds of crazy stuff back then

So what sharks are known to eat people? I mean there are any number of bitey sharks, but which ones are the reliable human chomp, chew, and swallowing types?

1 Bull sharks
2 Bronze whalers
3 White sharks
4 Blue Sharks
5 Maco sharks
6 Tiger sharks
7 ?

#7 huMAN-sharks ~ worst predators ever! They lay waste to everything they eat, snare or touch. shrug

Blacktip reef sharks can be really aggressive.

Spent most of my surfing life with the S/SE shore as my daily. Saw lots of sharks, chased out of the water a few times after it allowed us to see it and was more than a little curious. I think now of the bodysurf seshes just across the channel from Browns, sometimes alone. Glad the sharks never decided to ruin my day.


I knew my eggs was headed for dat big omelette in da sky!

A good friend of mine here was not so lucky. Johnny F. He's still around. A lot of you may know him. He got hit by a great white shark just north of Scott Creek in Santa Cruz county. Jumped in the water and was paddling out. Other guys already sitting on the outside when he got hit. 180 stitches. Airlift to Stanford Hospital. He just had jumped in and was paddling out.

Maybe surviving a shark attack does something to the survivor. I swear to god JF is one of the craziest people I know to this day. He still surfs.

[Linked Image]
Her left arm severed, her derriere missin' a huge chunk outta it! And that is not a huuuge shark.
She survived...

Yikes,

Nor in Florida, or in Hawaii? Time to swim else~where, no?
Hmmmm...
