Surfer Shares Wave With Great White Shark in Australia!

shark in wave med1 300x196 Surfer Shares Wave With Great White Shark in Australia!

Surfer Fergal Smith catches a 'tube' completely unaware he is sharing the wave with a Great White Shark

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

This is the adrenaline-pumping moment surfer Fergal Smith catches a ‘tube’ completely unaware he is sharing the wave with a Great White shark.

Mr Smith, 21, from Ireland was surfing two miles off the coast of Perth in Western Australia when he found himself just a few feet from the 500-pound monster.

The holidaymaker only realized his close encounter when photographer Phil Gallagher showed him the photo of the shark lurking under the water in front of Mr. Smith’s surfboard.

Australia’s Surfing Life magazine has awarded the Irishman ‘Euro surf-dude of the month’. ‘Just imagine being in the barrel and looking at a massive shark like you’re at the bloody aquarium or something,’ the magazine’s website said.

Since 1876 the Great White shark has been responsible for 65 deaths, and 242 recorded non-fatal attacks worldwide. Australia has had the most fatal Great White Shark attacks in the world, with 27 deaths – the most recent in 2005.

    its their home they keep it real keep it clean n get rid of retards pity humans don’t do same plenty of wasted air by man

  • wolves.ate.barbie

    Where is the sense in culling creatures that have only caused 65 human deaths in the last 150 years, when nothing has been done about gun control in the USA, weapons which have claimed thousands of lives in the last two decades?

    beware of sharks they can smell you in blood or if they are hungry you dont have a chance to survive;>

    Guys, a shark is a fish!! it doesn’t have a developed social system i.e. it doesn’t mourn the death of mums dads brothers sisters uncles as we do. Also the ocean is ours to use and is not the sole exclusive domain of the shark. Going for a swim or surf in our beautiful ocean beaches should not mean we are at risk of being torn to pieces by a large fish. Since the internal combustion motor was installed in fishing boats early last century, every pointer found was hauled out of every ocean world wide until the early seventies when protection for them started. Again, early last century, pre 1st world war, life guards in some metro beaches in W.A. sat on a tennis umpires stand with a 303 rifle at the ready. Unfortunately, things have begun to return to that level. Also no sealers or whalers operating and colonies and whale numbers returning.

    this website is fucking retarded. All you do is lie about your statistics and make up bullshit to sell fear to people. Sharks are peaceful dogs are responsible for more deaths each year then sharks you idiots. Get your shit together maybe i should make a website called “fear the 4 legged pouch”Fuck you

  • SharkGirl

    I was looking through pictures of my favorite animal The great white and I come across a photo that says this person was a few feet away from a “monster”. I was very surprised. You sir are rude. Great whites are amazing.

  • Eh

    Find this sad. “ooo a shark killed someone lets kill it!” yeah ok. The human population cant be wiped out by anything other than ourselves. We have no right honestly to go around and slash up all this marine life cuz a poor sap didnt understand their risks when they went in the water in the first place.

  • sad

    it better to not have any sharks THEN INNOCENT PEOPLE DEAD that is the biggest picture

    sharks have been around for millions of years. They lower fish populations which in return keeps several water resources flourishing. The water is their territory, as many would say the land is ours. We have no more right to kill them or their territory, as they would have to threaten us or ours.  Sharks are a must, every creature affects the ecosystem.Sharks are beautiful, mysterious, and that’s why any one who isn’t an intellectual would want to kill them. You fear what you do not understand. whether it be a creature or another person. Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s self-destruction. Enjoy the ocean and it’s inhabitants.

    Don’t you think that sharks love surfing as much as surfers. They get to have fun and troll for food if they are hungry. These animals are smart and know where people hang out. The line up is packed when it is big, which is why I don’t surf when it is big. Big wave=big sharks.

  • landlover

    Personally, I love dolphins. They’re mostly human-friendly, control a lot of the sea’s population and don’t cause trouble. However I agree with Burningdusk, look at the bigger picture. Have any of you even had a personal experience with a shark? Plus, as a species you can’t deny that human’s are worse anyway, so come on guys don’t go slagging off a species that isn’t even HALF as bad with killing as ourselves (just to clarify, I’m no vegetarian). If you don’t like sharks, don’t go near them, don’t let your family or friends go near them. That way you technically don’t have anything to whinge about, because everything else is nature’s way.

  • Megan Nicole

    Sharks are very important to the oceans. And it is extremely rare to be attacked by a shark. They only attack because its like them testing to see what we are. From under the surface, humans look similar to seals, their main source of food. It would be sad to see a day where there are no more sharks because humans are so selfish that they killed them all. And to those that dont care about shark finning, why dont you look a video up about it and see how horrible that is? Not everyone has to have the same oppinion about sharks, but please don’t express yours in such a nasty and disgusting way! People who care about our oceans are not idiots! You people need to grow up and stop the name calling!

  • sharks are greattttttttt

    okay if loads of people are killed by sharks its there own fault the sea is sharks territory when u enter the sea you enter at your own risk . if your killed by a shark unlucky but trust me more people are killed by bees than sharks just because sharks are big doesnt meen there killers. humans kill more sharks than humans its there planet to and i totally agree with burning dusk !!! also when a human killed by a shark it doesnt mean people should have the right to go and kill sharks looking for the one that is responsable for the death and if peopel have the right to do that then im sure sharks should have the right to eat loads of people who might of killed a shark like if you agree !!!!

  • Jade

    Sharks are only scary because we as a people have made them that way. In reality you have a better chance of being killed by your neighbor’s/or even your own dog than a shark. 65 deaths in over a hundred years?! That’s a very low amount when you think about it. Christ, a dog in the states bit of a little boys penis and almost killed him! A family dog! Dogs kill people allllll the time but we don’t go around saying “let’s kill all dogs” and “dogs are evil!”. Sharks have big teeth and are better predators than us so we made a movie called “Jaws” and thus a domino effect was created. Anyone who is genuinely afraid of  a shark because they look scary is blatantly admitting to the world that they are a dumb ass. Sharks deserve so much respect and it’s sad that an ignorant animal, human beings, is killing them and villainizing them. 

  • nomnomnom

  • IHazSharkFriends

     How is it so awesome if he didn’t know it was there? Out of the billions of people who swim only one or two are killed a year.  So your chances of being killed by a shark are like 1 in a billion and even so, people who get attacked by sharks normally behave stupidly and that’s why they die. The sea is the shark’s turf, not ours. I am 13 and here in South Africa we have never had an unprovoked shark attack since I was born (maybe longer but I’m not sure). All you shark haters: I’d like to stick you in a tub with a couple of sharks just to show you they are harmless. In our aquarium, divers swim with the sharks all the time. This website portrays sharks to be bad. Maybe you should change the name?
    p.s. You are more likely to be killed by a chair than a shark. Yes, I know, a chair.

I do actually agree with her but how can u have the intresst bye typing so mush on the formus ? haha …
    I know i have spelled very wrong in all that i wroth but please.

    calm down. sharks are scary and, yes,  sharks are being killed and that’s NOT good. But burningdusk, are you trying to say that if you saw a shark close to you you wouldn’t freak out? If you’re saying that calling them a monster is vulgar/ disgusting think about the situation. SHARKS KILL PEOPLE. maybe not on purpose, but they do. Yes, it’s not good to kill them, and it sure isn’t good for them to kill us, so maybe you should calm down. 

  • Tytytdsy

    I´m not a native speaker so excuse my english.
    how can they be sure that it is a “GREAT WHITE SHARK” in the wave? if it is really sharing the wave and not just swimingr near, it may be any other of the many shark species u can find in west coast Australia. look at the size of it, i would go for “white shark” and avoid the GREAT!

  • Troll

    i dont beleive in sharks

  • HelloSharky

    It sucks when we leave the safety of the cities and become prey doesn’t it? Circle of life!!!! We eat animals that we can over-power, animals eat us when we become over-powered. S#!T Happens

  • Burningdusk

    This website is disgusting. The language you use and the way you portray sharks is blown completely out of proportion. Don’t you know that 100 million sharks are being killed a year for fins? Or how vital they are to the ocean ecosystem. Look at the bigger picture people.

        we can still care about the stuff that is still here. there is a way i’m not a green freak but i sure as hell dont want an awsome animal that gets confused with us and seals to get hurt!

      Alright, shut up. I bet you’re disgusting from the sound of your whiny bullshit statistics. Who gives a shit about the sharks? I don’t know what wikipedia page you got your info from, but they’re not that vital to the ocean ecosystem at all. Get your facts right if you’re going to try and make such a ludicrous claim. Sharks blow, and so do you.

      • Travisbarboza

        your a faggot too btw

      • sharks are greattttttttt

        no burningdusk has a point if you can give a good reason about sharks and what you think about then go ahead atleats he has done that even if he got it off the web atleast he knows more than you maybe in future you should stick to wikipedia because you obviously dont know much about sharks so go get your facts right before you have ago at othere

      • Megan Nicole

        They are Very important to our ecosystem! Get YOUR facts straight! And dont talk about something you know NOTHING about!

      • Kyranp777

        Oi, cock munch. Sharks, being the apex predator of most of the oceans, are VERY IMPORTANT. Dont start whipping around your dumbass wanna-be facts, cause in actual reality, you know nothing. Please, go to a music shop, purchase some piano wire, tie it in a noose and then go fucking hang yourself. Its pieces if dumbass shit like you that ruin the internet and create false information, which makes very reliable information unreliable. Shut your mouth, choke on your food, and Die.

        another stupid comment, the have a connection with our ecosystem, if they wipe out, the fish population would overflow causing a crisis in oceans, research before saying something so retarded

      • http://www.facebook.com/allan.ramirez.12979 Allan Ramirez

        and where did you get the fact that any animal is not vital to the ecosystem? or any living being for that fact, I think though, you are harmful for the ecosystem, maybe you would like to be an endangered specie

      • Love Haterphobic

        So here Burningdusk is giving information and proof that sharks are vital to the ecosystem and here you are shooting him down. You said sharks aren’t important to the ecosystem? Where’s YOUR proof? I see that you are giving off hot air. Come back when you got proof that sharks aren’t important to the ecosystem. So go get your facts and quit trying to pretend that you’re smart.

Instead of jerking off to trap porn you should know every animal has a role in the eco system, apex predators being the most important cause they keep population control in check…learn something before you blurt out your overly retarded opinions formed from years of being exposed to crystal meth and a domestically abbusive home, probably with inbred brothers and sisters.

        • Joe M

          It is your opinion that is not well thought out. It is the natural and normal state for species to come and go in the eco-system.

          According to your logic, the eco-system was ruined because the tyrannosaurus rex went extinct.

          We don’t need white sharks for any eco-system reason. Apparently, some people need to protect sharks so they can pat themselves on the back and feel like they have an enlightened view. In reality, they have a sociopathic view that values the lives of sharks over human beings.

      • Elliott96

        Mate what are you, like 12? How fucking stupid are you, you dont know what the fuck your talking about. In the last ten years 2 people have died from shark attacks, and 100′s of millions of sharks have been killed by humans. To be honest what right do we have to enjoy being in the ocean when it’s their home? If your scared of going in the sea because of sharks then thats pretty sad mate. They are very important to the ocean eco system and wiping out all the sharks in the long term would without a doubt have a big effect on humans. So yeah shut the fuck up and think before you speak retard….

        • Joe M

          Each of those 2 people was worth more than all 100 million sharks. Or, do you have a loved one that you would sacrifice to save the 100 million sharks?

        the whole way of life underwater would change because the lesser species would slowly become larger and larger in population and eventually kill other species by eating all of the resources available.

        • http://www.facebook.com/allan.ramirez.12979 Allan Ramirez

          Good reasoning

        • Joe M

          Poor reasoning. If fish population was a problem it could easily be addressed by fishing more. Something that many people are eager to do.

      • plantsvszombies

        Earliest known sharks date from more than 420 million years ago. According to genetic studies, divergence of primates from other mammals began 85 million years ago and the earliest fossils appear in the Paleocene, around 55 million years ago, hence they are a living relic; a monument to earth’s evolutionary history. Also, capital letters are the preserve of proper nouns or the beginning of a sentence.

        • Joe M

          So, your argument is that because the shark species is older, we should allow them to kill people?

      • http://www.facebook.com/allan.ramirez.12979 Allan Ramirez

        heh, I’m you think we could survive in this planet by ourselves….any change in the ecosystem could trigger a massive effect, a fish eating machine like the white shark plays an important role in the sea’s food chain, you are just sacred and probably have never seen a shark face to face…they are powerful and a master piece, but in their territory you are a dumbass if you get too close, this is a shared world, and most important, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but i agree with 8 people, that maybe you shouldn’t go back to the hole you came from, :) k bye

        • Joe M

          The eco-system is naturally in a constant state of change. Removing white sharks would not be a problem.

      • Joe M

        According to the shark-protection logic, the eco-system should have been destroyed when the tyrannosaurus rex went extinct.

    • sharks are greattttttttt

      i totally agree with you shark are great and all the rest can shut up because sharks are great they rule the sea if people are killed by then its there own fault for going in the sea if we have a right to kill sharks sharks should have the right to kill humans because it there  planet too !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Joe M

      Millions of sharks are killed for all kinds of reasons and the vast majority of shark populations do just fine anyway. Same with a lot of wildlife that is hunted on land.

      What is disgusting is that some people think that we should protect the lives of sharks at the expense of human beings.

    I cant believe you are fighting over the nature of sharks. I have ACTUALLY grown up around sharks and my family constantly swims in waters with them and you just have to be aware. Humans are not made to live in the sea, its the sharks territory and by being more developed than the shark does not mean that as soon as we enter the water they are the ‘bad’ ones. People need to grow up and realise they arnt hungry man eaters, they’re natural predators and by going into the ocean you know the consequences of entering another predators place

        Sharks actually don’t enjoy humans. Apparently we’re just the thing that’s around if there’s nothing else and they’re hungry. Like if you’re hungry and can’t find anything, you go for whatever’s there. We’re like the gross vegetable no one likes, compared to seals who are like the steak dinner. Yeah.

        Omg listening to you is infuriating its fucking pathetic how anyone can just post dumb shit on the web like some dumb cunt named sexy hoez can post retarded shit like this, yeah you can swim in the ocean but if you get attacked by a shark don’t think its anyones fault thats just how it is, people get into accidents whether fatal or not all the time, the best you can do is prevent it but obviously a dumb narrow minded simpleton like you thinks we can wrape the world in balloons and soft things so we dont get hurt no more and kill all the other life forms on this planet just to make sure you don’t get a boboo and can swim and make sand castles…you know the angels are going to sing hymss for days and the world will join in peace the day you die cause then and only then we will be rid of you and all the other jackasses who deserve death and eternal torment for being so fucking stupid…

        • Joe M

          The world doesn’t have to be a riskless place. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t work to avoid senseless risks. Protecting sharks at the expense of human life is senseless.

      • sharks are greattttttttt

        yeh he did but you enter it at your own risk if your eaten alive its your own fault

        • Joe M

          No. I’d say that the people who think it’s wrong to cull dangerous sharks from areas that they have hurt or killed people have some responsibility.

          Mika. The problem with your argument is that there are humans that we fight in order to protect others from them. For example terrorists.

    • sharks are greattttttttt

      i totally agree if you enter the water you enter at your own risk and im fine with people entering water but when there bitten doesnt mean you should go out killing shark if you get bitten its your own fault i say more people are killed by bees and you wouldnt says bees are man eaters lol

      • Joe M

        I disagree. When people go into the water and are bitten, removing the dangerous sharks is exactly what it should mean.

    • Nik

      Such a correct and good response – we go into their home and expect them to live by our rules?! No, we must respect sharks completely, we are not water inhabiting creatures so we just need to be careful. If a shark could walk on land it would be shot within a few minutes, just like too many people and other animals are constantly. It’s important to respect one of, if not THE oldest living species on this planet.

      • Joe M

        There is nothing important about protecting sharks at the expense of human beings.

    • kevin58634

      your right like a shark thinks like us they are Animals I give you guys a lot of credit and anyone that is not scared of oceans because sharks don’t think like us. People would be that would be sick too eat a least I would . your right all the way about what you said sharks see people swimming and they think your food in the ocean Sharks are bad ass

    • Joe M

      Sharks are animals. They don’t own territories.

      When sharks present a danger to human beings, the dangerous ones should be culled out of those areas.

  • Alicia

    CaninusGirl is an egotistical moron who fancies Ingrid Newkirk (PETA founder).

    • Dyl_123_is

      Actually Alicia, I have never met, researched or previously heard of Ingrid. But as for PETA…
      I am supportive of the idea of treating animals ethically, however, in my opinion, the standards PETA sets are unrealistic and downright dangerous.
      They believe not eating any animal products is healthy. It would be cruel to deprive your carnivourous or omnivorous domestic of meat; you would make that animal very sick. So why expect eveyone to do so? Meat and other animal products are essential to our survival and, meat especially, is part of our culture. They actually say its healthier not to eat eggs at all. Nutritionists would beg to differ.
      They believe animal testing is wrong because some of the diseases they test medicines for are preventable BUT SOME ARE NOT! Cancer is not yet fully understood and not all causes are lifestyle related. It is not fair, but there is no real alternative at present.
      And they oppose recreational fishing which, if done responsibly has very little impact. Its the idiots taking undersized fish and fishing in protected areas for protected species that do the damage. Fishing is a part of our anthropological heritage. We used it to survive back when we hunted to eat.
      And there are so many more demands that approach the insane.

      Of course that’s just my opinion, but I’m egotistical and a moron, so it is my mission to make everyone’s opinion the same as mine with certainty of success. Thanks for noticing.

    yes sharks make test bites, but these “test bites” are made to bleed the prey (if it is living) and rob it of the oxygen in its blood. Without oxygen in its blood its prey will sink to the bottom where the shark can finish its meal

    And the shar in all the JAWS movie isn’t real so don’t get scare of the water after you watch them!

  • Totallysuperserial

    Please tell me you people don’t consider the Jaws movies to be accurate portrayals of shark behavior.. If that’s the case, then I guess John Cusack is going to jump RVs over falling bridges in the year 2012. Sharks do not really eat people..it’s like many on this board have said: they take a bit because they don’t know what you are, but humans are not their natural prey. Yes they are dangerous, but you are choosing to go into their natural habitat, so don’t get pissed if you lose a leg.

  • CaninusGirl

    Martin why do you go to the effort of blocking me; deleting and flagging my posts?
    Wouldn’t it just be easier to admit that you don’t really believe in shark conservation, that your affinity with the Jaws franchise causes you to blame EVERYTHING on (the protected) Great White Sharks though there are numerous other species with the same potential, and that you are a most definitely sensationalist writer (intentionally or not).
    After all you let people like Goatmurray use heinously derrogatory terms such as the one he uses on this page in reply to José Martin Alvarez Milan (commonly used to refer to people of homosexual orientation). I have flagged it repeatedly and you have never deleted it.
    You have allowed him to use an offensive term on your website, but disallowed me from critiquing your articles. Do you not see the hypocrisy?

    • http://www.fearbeneath.com Martin Brody

      Oh CaninusGirl, you are one of our favorite readers. Your enthusiasm and passion for sharks is almost equal to ours, and your uncompromising support of free speech warms our shark-y little hearts.

      We could use a fiery young soul such as yourself on our dedicated team of shark journalists. How’d you like to write a guest post or two for the Fear Beneath? I think you have a lot of knowledge to share with our community, and I’d like to give you a forum to do so. Subject to editorial review, of course.

      Look forward to hearing back from you – and as always, thanks for reading!

      Martin Brody

      • CaninusGirl

        Um, thanks but no thank you.
        One of my main objections to this site is it’s claim to be a Conservation supportive site but it’s lack of any real conservation work, and in fact negative portrayal of endangered and protected species.
        You write almost exclusively of Great White sharks but there are so many other species out there that are just as, if not more dangerous and just as interesting. You seem to have this inexplicable affinity with Jaws and all things Jaws related. It is not healthy.
        Bull sharks and Oceanic Whitetip sharks are so amazing. Mako sharks are very cool and Whale sharks are just the most beautiful marine creature (I’d sooner swim with one of them than a dolphin… But if I could swim with Humpback or Blue Whales my choice would be harder).
        Writing for this site would be as if expressing support for it. I could not do that because I disagree with the way you terrorise the public with the phantom-like idea of a sadistic, omnipresent human-hating monster.
        Even if this was a serious offer, I decline.

                Actually I didn’t tell Blowout to do anything. I ASKED ‘him’ if ‘he’ was unevolved.
                The implication was that ‘he’ lacks the social skills to interact appropriately or the education to engage in conflict without resorting to lewdness.
                And that is more due to a deliberate avoidance of pleasantry than related to an inadequacy in education.

I dont care if i am in there territory, im looking to have a great time, and that wuld be possible if they were all gone. And no im not just a shark hater, im talking about jellyfish and everything like that. But before Adam and Eve sinned, there was no eating other animals or eating people. Everything was at peace, until they ate the fruit. So shut up, just because other people think your opinion is stupid. You care about sharks, other like me dont, doesnt mean you have to post on everyones negative comment about sharks.

    • CaninusGirl

      When it comes down to the legal system, then yes, it is all about intention, premeditation and knowledge to determine what makes a murder.
      When it comes down the animal kingdom, it is all about survival.
      You either have to accept that humans are another type of animal, and are therefore prey for other animals if we make ourseves available (and not in an “it’s our own fault” way, but in the same way a bunny rabbit is available prey for a fox) or become a threat to other animals; OR you think that humans belong in a different class to other animals, in which case, murder is only committed by one human against another, and animal attacks do not apply, and therefore intent is not relevant to the attack.
      To make an intelligent rebuttal, you will have to create an intelligent argument in the first place. Simply because people are in favour of shark welfare, does not necessarily mean they are opposed to human welfare, or relish shark attacks.

          Just so you know that first part was sarcasm. What with the written word lacking tonality, and you clearly lacking brains, I thought I should inform you.

          I will repeat: “To make an intelligent rebuttal, you will have to create an intelligent argument in the first place.”

          Your argument shows no creativity and littler than no intelligence. It is less an argument than a reversion to playground days of “I know you are, but what am I?” or “I’m rubber, you’re glue; whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.”

          You are pathetic, and unworthy of access to commentary on any subject, other than How to Beat an Infant in an Argument. There you would be in your element, but still likely outmatched by five year-olds.

          I would suggest that you re-educate yourself, but that would imply an education in the first place.
          In failing that, consult someone before next use of your keybaord, lest you compound your foolishness.

    Someone’s talking about empathy in sharks!??

    WTH?
    They have no empathy! They don’t even have the damn idea what empathy means!

    What all sharks want is ‘FOOD’
    They just want to eat for their livings. If they were truly merciless, they could totally tear anyone apart anywhere and anytime.

    They attack humans because they want to ‘taste’ us.

    Go check out.
    They bite everything, even ships, cages, etc.

    WE DON’T LIVE IN THE SEA, SO HOW COME THEY WANT TO EAT US?
    THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW THAT WE’RE HUMAN CUZ WE DON’T LOOK LIKE ANY SINGLE FISH.

    Go to Discovery Channel. We’re nothing but aliens to them.

    Or do you? You’ve got fins?

    • mr. you don’t know

      there not as bad as they look

  • Awesomesause

    holy crap

  • Cynthia

    wow there in danger

  • Der Weisse Hai

    It’s disturbingly amazing to me how many people come on these sites and talk like they’ve been around sharks their entire life while someone truly well read in the feild of marine biology looks on as an undetermined ammount of people pick up bad information about sharks… First off just because there is a shark in the water doesnt mean it is going to chomp you to peices. Actually most great white attacks are whats called a “test bite” where the shark bites down because it is curious about wether we are food or something else. Second for all you “Jaws” nuts the shark attacks portrayed in that movie were based on bull shark attacks off the Jersey shore not great whites adding as well that bull sharks have one of the most concentrated testosterone levels of any other animal on the planet. One last fact while on the subject of bull sharks they CAN survive in fresh water as well as salt water and have been sited as far north as Illinois in the Mississippi River. Please I encourage everyone interested in sharks do not beleive everything you read on the internet for most people only babble on about what they have been told about sharks without receiving any real knowledge, therefore many people have a warped and twisted perception on these creatures and consider them bloody thirsty man eating monsters which isn’t the case. It’s like saying the whole bundle is rotten just because you found one bad apple.

    • Stanblayde

      “many people have a warped and twisted perception on these creatures and consider them bloody thirsty man eating monsters which isn’t the case.”

      Bullshit. Great Whites are wild animals, they HAVE to be bloodthirsty to survive. They dont get their dinner put on the table for them every day. If they dont catch dinner, they starve to death. Therefor, its a reasonable assumption to make that if you see a shark, you run, and you run quick (or you swim, or you die). Opinions like yours are dangerous, why? Because you might convince some poor sap that sharks just really want to be our friends and they are misunderstood, sob, sob. Again, bullshit. A hungry wild shark is NOT your friend. He DOES want to eat you. He is not misunderstood in his intentions. If you understand that in the sharks eyes, its either eating you or starving to death, there is no misunderstanding to be had there. Like I say, opinions like yours may be responsible for someone relaxing their attitude around sharks, but around an animal as potentially dangerous as that, you cant afford to drop your guard even 1%. Whether sharks are misunderstood or not, its totally dumb to be anything but weary when you see one because the odds are, when you see one, its because its hungry.

      • SoyIsMurder

        You are right that Great Whites are wild animals. That doesn’t mean they are hunting humans. If sharks were hunting humans, there would be tens of thousands of deaths each year, rather than a few dozen. Sharks evolved over hundreds of millions of years. Humans have been going in the oceans for only the last few thousand years, so there is no way that sharks could have evolved a hunting strategy to target humans in such a short time. That being said, sharks are not infallible, and they are not particularly choosy about what they eat. Combine that with murky water or mistaken identity, and you are going to see a certain number of attacks on humans. The risks are low enough that surfing and diving can still be considered safe activities (safer than driving, BTW). If ignorant, fearful people like you play it safe and go to Disneyland instead of the beach, then there is more room for my towel.

        shut up punk!

          hey lil fag pls dnt tell people to shut up

      • sharks are greattttttttt

        hes not saying that but if you do see a shark yeh a suggest run or swim what hes trying to say is there not that deadly yes a few peopel die here and there but compare it to other animal attcks more peopel die from bees than sharks …even tho i do run from bees lol

    • Pyrolord66

      you are right people find sharks blood thirsty man eaters when really they are just curious and trying to survive sharks are being wiped out because people wont come to the reality that they are just trying to survive, i hat how the media always exaggerates shark attacks they need to stop being so dumb, elephants kill more people a year then sharks do, people die more of bee stings then a shark attack, you never see any of that on the news or anything, i am glad you don’t see sharks as mindless killers, the real killer is man we have slaughtered so many sharks, that they are disappearing and if that day comes the whole ocean will go out of wack, so please people read what this person said and do some research of your own before you believe what you hear on the news or from someone who doesn’t know what they are talking about.

      • sharks are greattttttttt

        now people should listen to this person he talks sence

    • Matthewiiv

      Nice wikipedia knowledge there mate

    • Alicia

      That does not mean that I am going to swim with the sharks! Test bit or not, I do not need one!

    • sharks are greattttttttt

      AGREED !!!!!! XD

  • CleverRobot

    ofcourse they dont kill alot u idiot do we live with sharks???? oh come on its not like we live in the ocean its different!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and beside not all beaches have sharks and not alot of people go that far in to the sea than surfer’s just stupid so ofcourse it should be rare!

    • Its_an_animal_thing

      cleverrobot jus so you know shark attacks can happen in as little as two feet of water, and as it shows by your ignorant comment, you know very little about sharks. Saying “they don’t kill alot cause we don’t live with them” is the equivilant of saying “I don’t get shocked cause I don’t grab the livewire.” Good job you figured out we don’t have gills somebody get this person a nobel peace prize for figuring out that “Sharks don’t kill us cause we don’t live with them.” Well Clever, as your name implys, turns out that people swim in the ocean every single day and you’ll never guess where the sharks live…..Half the people in the world would never swim in the ocean again if they could see some of the stuff swimming past them from a birds eye veiw. Really is incredible watching 3 or 4 people swim within 3 feet of a 9ft tiger shark and not even realize how close these dangerous animals were to them. Simple fact is this Clever every time you step out into the ocean you are entering shark territory wether there are sharks close by or not is different but you are still in shark territory

    Nice!. Surfers and sharks are all wave lovers :) Readers might be interested in a small research/activist project going on in South Africa right now. SURFERS AGAINST SHARK CAGE DIVING. Great White attacks on humans (mostly surfers & spearfishermen) have increased by more than 1000% since 1991, which is when Shark Cage Diving started in South African waters. Watermen know that sharks aren’t out to get us, but any change in their behaviour could spell disaster for us as we are first in the feeding line! Its an argument that needs to be looked at! check out the info-site http://www.stopsharkcagediving.com

    • Anonymous

      The notion that Cage Diving increases the risk of shark attacks is dubious at best. First, sharks have made the correlation between boats and feeding since the first fishing boats ever set sail. Second, an increase in attacks in more likely due to a depletion of their natural prey.

  • MADAMIEN

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  • Adrianpaultenorio

    I can not believe it is the great white shark because it will attack the surfer i think its adolphin its not big

    • mr.you don’t know

      i could be any thing but i think its a shark and just cause its close does not mean it will attack.only if you go over it will it attack

  • Warman

    lets see you hang out with that shark then, if you think about it, theyre more dangerous because not many if any people survive encounters with sharks. Yet people encounter hundreds of peopls a month for theyre entire life and remain unharmed, its a numbers game, but sharks rely on instinct alone there for making them dangerous monsters

  • Alphabetsoupperson

    that's a bottlenose dolphin, not a shark

  • Drunkinmaster

    sik wave and congrats on surfing with a shark… cant wait for the day im privliaged enuff to surf wid a great white and able to walk away from it, memory tht would last foreva

  • Torres_estefani

    hi i am a fan of the great white sharks i like seEing the movies of sharks i also seen all the movies of jaws and about sharks

  • Drudown

    How's this.

    Go to youtube and search “shark takes woman's leg”.

    Then go to Google and search “Lloyd Skinner, Fish Hoek South Africa”.

    It may be exceedingly rare, but there is little doubt that White sharks are menacingly deadly towards their prey and monstrous in size. Off the top of my head I believe someone who witnessed the Skinner fatality said the shark was “dinosaur huge”. I had the pleasure to dive with White sharks off Guadalupe Island and it was quite clear to me that these creatures are incapable of mercy, incapable of empathy and have evolved to complete what time has allowed.

    Sometimes we find ourselves in their jaws. But even that is alright. It makes them all the more mysterious.

    • sharks are greattttttttt

      yeh because there big and have huge teeth doesnt mean there so deadly HELLO PEOPLE MORE PEOPLE DIE FROM BEES THAN SHARKS lol 

      • Joe M

        And hundreds of thousands of fish, including sharks, are caught for optional eating and/or the fun of it.

        But, some people think that fishing sharks to protect people is wrong? What kind of logic is that?

    • thehappymedium

      hey i checked the sight out,, man the poor guy never had a chance..Well if you are in their space, lookout,, its their territory
      we watched a documentary the other night on a team that was dissecting a great white, too bad to see such an amazing creature gone, but the dissection was done dockside by a team and it was awesome, turns out the sharks skin is actually composed of millions of tiny teeth hence the sandpaper feeling if you brush against them, the jaws actually unhinge when biting or attacking. They havent changed in millions of years,, they are amazing,,, and yet i still surf but freak when i see movement..
      Never dove with sharks but have surfed unknowingly with them

    • Joe M

      What about people getting killed by animals is “alright”?

      To me, humans are behaving like lemmings when they conclude that we should accept human deaths due to shark attacks.

  • Admin

    …and much-much more sharks.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Martin.AlvarezMilan Jose Martin Alvarez Milan

    They call this great animal a “monster” and a killer. 65 recorded deaths since 1876? even if it was 4 times that number we “civilized” human beings kill more humans across the world in less than 1 month, I am pretty sure.

    • Kesharox12

      haha

    • Goatmurry

      yeah right faggot

    • Totallsuperserial

      Yeah I honestly don’t think 65 recorded deaths over the course of 135 years is really a large amount. I actually laughed when I read that..is that supposed to be a huge number? Hell, the food people eat and their bad habits are more likely to kill them…

      • sharks are greattttttttt

        yeh and more peopel are killed by bees than sharks lol and as well if you dont want to take the risk its quite simple dont go in the water duh i think all these people that say then hate sharks should go complain to sem one that cares or they could go set up a anti shark group on fbk gl because you cnat kill all the sharks in the world

      • Joe M

        Would you laugh if one of your loved ones was killed by a shark?

    • Joe M

      Every one of those 65 human beings was worth more than every shark in the world.

      Or, do you have a loved one that you would gladly sacrifice for the sake of saving sharks?

      • mrtnalvrz

        Dude, I am not putting a price on a life… not human nor animal. What I am trying to do is make a point that we are justifying a savage killing on a species based on a stupid fact.

        Now, having said that, I have met humans that are worse than the worst predator in the world. I have met human that kill for fun while most animals kill to stay alive.
