I'm just glad I was wearing my brown shorts at the time.

That would have to be one of the heaviest things I have ever seen.

Jeez I feel for Mick. I'm so happy he's ok. That was the stuff of nightmares.

So Heavy, seeing him get knocked off and then unable to see where he went.
Good on WSL for not staying for the close up for what could have been........
Had some $$$$ on Mick too !!!

That was horrible, so glad mick got out of it. Reasonable size dorsal/tail, 'looks like a little splash' - parp.

This from tracks... thoughts?

Living on the west coast it's hard not to think about the grey suits at times but i'm deadset against any culling, baiting, netting and even patrolling. That last one particularly, pissed me off immensely to be buzzed by the patrol chopper a while back. What a fucken joke, "we've sighted a shark in the ocean, everyone get out". Ludicrous and extremely human to want a cull.

Red bull will help in shark attacks. And red bull hat and a sip when any cameras rolling.
