A re-examination of the way we approach the shark attacks through the arming of surfers with essential shark knowledge. This podcast is a reading of the surfing guide to sharks written by myself with the help of oceanographers, scientists, surfers, and paramedics.
This podcast will give you some information about sharks that may influence when, where, and how you enter the water to surf. The information in this podcast is essential for every ocean goer to know, yet our government and even surf life-saving groups fail to teach it. The fact that we share the ocean with dangerous apex predators on daily basis will finally be addressed in a way aimed to help you make informed decisions. This is a must-listen for surfers and shark enthusiasts.
How do the sky, the rain, and the time of day affect the hunting habits of sharks? Why is a Great White colored the way it is and how does making their bodies warm makes them smarter? Where in a surf break do most attacks happen and how? The guide is here to not only address important questions but also to address the reality of sharks and the danger that sharing the water with them brings with it. Our biggest and best defense against shark attacks, in my opinion, is changing the way our society views them and understanding that what we need to defend ourselves comes in the form of knowledge.
