I have been chased out of the water by two sharks, I knew they weren't dolphins because a sharks only bend side to side and dolphins can only arch their backs like whales. Anyway, I was out surfing the beach breaks and I saw two sharks about 50' away. When you're out that far 50' seems like 5'......I waited for a good wave, one that I could get one last tube ride......not really, I just got the hell out of there. I think I paddled in faster than the waves.;)

Ive been stung by jellyfish at Westwards.
A seal at Malbu pier chased me for a second.
A Severed Seal head hit me at esco while there was a dead dolphin beached up like 5 ft away (im guessing there was a shark in the area.)
Before i found out how to get Angel to stop chasing me i got fucked up by a border collie. lol.

I got attacked by a pitbull. I had to gouge its eyes to get it to let go of my board. People on the beach saw it happen and thought it had my hand in its mouth along with the board and when they heard the crunch they were about to call 911. Thinking back I should have gouged its eyes harder and killed it. The lady blamed me for her unleashed pitbull attacking me.

Yes......what the hell are you doing on the beach, and you should have had your board on a leash too.:rolleyes:

My local spot is an inlet so I've seen the food change in action watching feeding frenzies of mullet, tarpon, and sharks... a big ball at all once. We had a little fun w/ it and threw anyone's board if they fell. It was the scariest day of my life. I've also seen sharks swimming along the shore and had an eagle ray jump out of the water 5ft. from my face when i was just hanging out w/ some friends.

I got a jellyfish in my wetsuit once. Its probably similar to sea lice which I've luckily never encountered... were you itching for days / did they try to live in your hair etc?

i dont think sea lice actually like stick with you if so it wasnt sea lice, it was just like a crazy burning itching biting pain if that make sense and then we left and it went away

one time there was some heavy south winds and i was skimming a spot with a couple rock jetties and on the north side of the jetty there was like 3 or 4 white egrets standing there to stay protected from the wind. i saw that the waves were breaking pretty decently off the rocks, but then i realized that those egrets were standing there before me and if skimmed there i would scare them away, therefore resulting in the egrets not having that nice little niche to be blocked from the wind. so i didnt skim there because it would of been mean. you gotta respect the environment and wildlife, its theirs before its ours,
oh and one time in laguna a big gnarly seal swam right up to me at the end of the water and i was standing at the break coming up from a wave and i thought he was gonna eat me

over the summer me and a bunch of broski's were skimming our linner spot wich is on a island. that week there was tons of great white sightings where we were. so we were up on the beach chilling after the sesh and all of a sudden there was a ton of birds flying around like 50 yards off shore. and my friend nick says ill bet we see a shark today...and we are all like yeah rite...that would be crazy and like 1 minut later we whach a great white shark jump half way out of the water and completley fuck up a seal. it was the crazyest thing i have ever seen. i felt like i was whaching some shit on the dicovery channel or something, so i get on my cell to report it. the cops told me that they were guna send some people to tag the shark. about a half an hour later 2 helocopters and about 5 police boats came. when we got home we put on the news and there was vidio of the shark from helocopter and it showed them tagging the shark, they said it was measured and it was 18 feet long...thats a fat ass shark. that day was the best day of skimboarding in my life. there were 40 second chest high liners and fat ass sharks jumping out of the water...it was awsooooome!
