George Greenough’s Shark Files: Six Personal Shark Scares in Australia | “If you can see a shark coming, you have a chance. If you don’t, good luck.”
If you surf, you think about sharks. If you haven’t actually seen one, you’ve probably had one come fairly close and not even know it. George Greenough has six personal tales of coming close, too close, to the oceans top predator.
“Sharks are interesting fish. When you are in the sea, you must be very aware. Your head should be moving about constantly, watching birds, fish, dolphins—generally alert for any type of swirls, boils, or moving shadows. Usually it is nothing more than turtles, rays, or dolphins. If you can see a shark coming, you have a chance. If you don’t, good luck.”
