Re: Surfer Attacked by Shark on Live Tv

If you put yourself where they live, you're increasing the odds of having an encounter. It doesn't matter if it's happened before. That doesn't lessen your chance of it happening again.
The statistics don't fall in your favor on this one.

Re: Surfer Attacked by Shark on Live Tv

On the Eastern cape where Jbay is, there's been 98 shark attacks in 100 years 14 of those were fatal..considering I drive in a car everyday and 1000's of people are involved in road accidents, I like the shark odds better.

But really..No way I'd swim anywhere in South Africa

Re: Surfer Attacked by Shark on Live Tv

Even up here in Northern California, where the water is cold - there was a abalone diver who went head first off his boat, right into the path of a shark.

It bit his head off.
His diving partner on the boat was witness.

I thought it was one of the most awesome things I'd ever heard.

You'd assume now that he'd be safe, statistically could that happen again? He'd be one unlucky bugger if it did.

Wow! He is really hot. He was visibly shaken by the whole thing you could tell. I do not blame him for taking some time.

Yeah the quote was a bit off. You new he would change his tone in about a day!

I have only surfed 3 times in my life and never really paid attention to the sport of it but it is a fucking crazy sport! if its not surfing in shark infested waters its using boat to launch themselves into giant waves that would crush you if they came down wrong!

Re: Surfer Attacked by Shark on Live Tv

Very lucky man to have escaped that

Shame he's suffered psychological effects.
