The news said he got most of his right thigh taken off, he asked another surfer to follow him in just in case he passed out while paddling in, when they got to the beach they used a towel to stop the bleeding which ultimatley saved his life. There have been a lot of tigers spotted all over hawaii recently, and when winter time comes and the whales come back we will be seeing a whole lot more. Not to mention we are seeing more and more great whites down here, I would appreciate it if you cali guys can control your sharks a little better, geez, j/k

I think its time for a little shark eradication. There have always been quite a few sharks here, but it just seems like they've been a little more brave/aggressive lately.

That's just stupid. The reason there are more shark attacks here on Oahu is because there are more people in the water. Not more sharks. More people means more chances of an encounter. Historically I think FL, Datona Beach specifically has more shark attacks than anywhere else in the states just because there are so many damn people in the water!!

No shit, I'm straight up haole and I've only been here six months and already know enough about Hawaiian Culture to know better than to say some stupid shit like that.

Damn:eek:. They said it was bad on the news, but of course no pictures, how did you get this pic? Man, I hope he is having a good recovery, I wish him well.

Surfermag.com. I checked, it is him. Consistent with the news report and the interview with him. I have surfed this break. It is a long swim out as you have to go around the reef. Must have been an even longer swim back in...

I have never surfed and I would like to learn, but it seems to me that you are just asking to be attacked. On top of getting scraped up on rocks and the such, you also pose as a large, slow, surface animal. I wish him a speedy recovery as well, but we must respect the fact that when you go in the ocean you are a visiter in the sharks house, so be prepared to play by his rules.

If you have never surfed you shouldn't start. The risks way outweigh the rewards. Tell all your friends.

This kind of wound could be sewn together.. Hopefully he has good insurance and hospital could do the operation.. (there no separation of the joints, some muscle tears, that kind of wound could be easily put together by a surgeon and a neurosurgeon)

Check out the Documentary Sharkwater, it needs to be told about what's happening to our oceans.

Sharkwater is an absolutely amazing film and definitely shows the truth of what is happening to our oceans and the Sharks in general. its going to be a very sad future for our oceans if it keeps up

:lol: We try to control our whites but for some reason they want to live in Hawaii. Go figure!

Hahaha
:lol:

But seriously, shark population will escalate fast, and if you read
the old days papers, there will be more "accidents".
Its just that, they live there, we are just visiting.
