This post was inspired by a close encounter I had with a 6 foot Bronze Whaler – a shark of the limb removal genre! My wife and I went out for a surf on the SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) at [insert secret location] in Anglesea Victoria. I have been in the water my whole life and never seen one … until today.
As you would expect, we both headed back to shore. But not before taking in the breath taking majesty of the this creature. It was only a couple of glimpses (the dorsal fin 1 second … and then it’s entire length under my board the next), but the speed and presence of this shark was quite awe inspiring.
For those that don’t know what a SUP is, I’ll let The Feeze (via RobDog) demonstrate in these 2 videos …
ps. I do not surf waves anywhere near this big and powerful, but still have loads of fun
