A picture of the surf board would be too much to ask for?

freetomato: I have a decent scar on my leg from a piece of broken glass that cut me. It was inside a garbage bag I was carrying to to the dumpster. The bag swung and sliced my calf.

My story is that I was cliff diving in Baja Mexico and got nipped by a nurse shark when I swam back to shore. I am not a great liar but I have pulled it off more than once. Not to be duplicitous but for amusement's sake. If questioned, I admit the truth and laugh.


Pick another shark. Try a thresher.

buckler: Well, it makes sense. The nose contains a lot of the shark's major sensory systems, and is quite sensitive. If you need to get rid of one in a hurry, whack it in the nose a few times. Sure beats the shiat out of the US Navy training films in the 40's, advising sailors to slap the water in a rhythmic fashion to repel sharks, which we now know only attracts them.


noblewolf: I have found that a lot of predators do not expect the prey to fight back.  Being aggressive to the shark was probably something it is not normally confronted with.  I'm not marine biologist, just my 2 cents...


These.  These two things together are the reason why punching a shark in the face is exactly what the professionals instruct people to do when attacked.

Sounds like this guy kept calm in a terrifying situation, and came out with a best-case scenario.  Good for him.

Based on the meme I thought someone grabbed a shark and started doing something entirely different...

Well, at least the story will get him free drinks for a few years.

iheartscotch: COME ON! SERIOUSLY?

dude; the shark was just seeing if you were tasty; there's no reason to punch him in the eye. He probably would have been all; "that's no seal, that's one of those hairless monkey thingys. Those things are so greasy; and they taste like that trash that they throw in the water." And then; he'd have swam off to continue his sharkyness, elsewhere.

If some toothy primitive thing tries to chomp me, I'm pulling out all the stops.
