Fatal shark attach in Mexico (Troncones) - 2008/05/01 13:47 I just got back from a trip to Troncones, a day later on Monday there was a fatal shark attack by a great white! Freaked me out. They never have attacks in Mexico. Has anyone else heard of a great white attack in Mexico!?

Re:Fatal shark attach in Mexico (Troncones) - 2008/05/02 04:55 It is a part of surfing, I do feel bad for the surfer.

It does annoy me when the media makes it headline news.

We, as surfers, have a better chance of being hit by lightning than being attacked by a shark.

Re:Fatal shark attach in Mexico (Troncones) - 2008/05/08 13:45 hopefully, the shark knows about this lightning thing!!!

Re:Fatal shark attach in Mexico (Troncones) - 2008/09/13 00:54 Thankfully shark attacks are a very very rare thing in British waters and the only documented ones are from sea fishermen. Still, it hasn't stopped the press trying to freak holiday makers out with White Shark sightings

Second Great White Shark Sighting.


Being use to pretty safe waters, I'd be useless in any ocean with a higher risk of sharing my wave with a shark (of any kind).
