Give me a pool any day...I can swim for hours and not worry about the unseen!!!



As long as it's not a chlorinated pool because
swimming in chlorinated pools can lead to cancer.

That's cool, stay on the beach and then there is more waves for me.
Besides if you are chicken, the sharks can smell that and they like chicken!

This is a little shark, I catch these up to 4 foot in the surf all the time, stingrays, skates, bat rays, all within 15 feet of the shore.

Do you really want to know why people don't surf ?? Because it's HARD !! Unlike a sport like snowboarding, where you can get past beginner in 3-5 days, surfing usually takes years to progress past "kook" status.

And forget about sharks, the biggest danger in So Ca waters is the sewer runoff you're swimming in, not to mention most other surfers don't want any more "friends" to compete for waves.

thanx lucas for posting that story about the kid near VAFB beach... however, as every surfer knows or any water-person worth his or her salt should know... there are sharks in them thar waters... do I want to meet up with one? absolutely not! however how many people are killed in auto accidents every year? yet we all still keep driving right? airline crashes? we still keep flying... cancer? we still keep smoking and drinking or whatever... i would encourage everyone to get their mitts on a book entitled "The Devil's Teeth" by Susan Casey... it's a great book with some great insights on the great whites... oddly great whites are not white only their bellies... go figger right?

Didn't seem that hard to me, along with Shorin-Ryu, Electric Guitar, Cooking and the the ability to destroy Tiki Central with a single post!
of course I was 13 at the time & nobody was telling me what I could & couldn't do, The TC destruction power came a couple of years later of course.
