Re:close encounters - 2007/03/01 10:01 I was Surfing in Cali, I was Surfing at a spot called Oak St. It has a little heavy shorebreak section. So, it was about 5ft. I had a pretty good wave ect. Anyway I pull into this heavy shore break barrel and get totally worked. I was rotated once and then, grabbed on to the kelp. Friends said I was under for 7 seconds.

Re:close encounters - 2007/03/07 09:51 I surfed the Maldives in 2001 and majorly worked at Honkeys. I don't know how long I got held down but it was quite scary. I saw lots of reef sharks on the trip but believed them to be be the diet coke of sharks until i heard that recently someone nearly from an attack by one. It must been very hungry. I also got smashed on a reef in west wales and cut my hand open and my longboard fin slashed my 5mm wetty the other day, and left me with a big egg on my head. Other than that nothing worth a medal for valour.
