Might not be a bad idea to carry a .45 in your dry bag to send a "message" to Jaws.
A love sick shark that thought the kayak was another shark?
Understatement of the year award ?
45/70. A shark doesn't have any brain, so you shoot for the gills. We'd only have to exterminate three or four species of sharks and there'd never be another attack on a human. There'd still be 297 species of the fricking things for "scientists" who don't give a sh** about their fellow man to study.
"We're going to need a bigger kayak!"
This man is really a profound thinker, isn't he?
Gives a whole new meaning to "Maui Wowie!"
Tiger shark, probably.
Great White? In Hawaiian waters? Those waters are kinda "warm" for Whites, aren't they?
The big predatory shark in Hawaiian waters is the Tiger. 'Course Tigers "check things out" by biting first and asking questions later. So maybe it was a GW...
Wouldn't it have been better to stop paddling altogether? I thought sharks were attracted by repetitive sounds and motion.
AGH! The husband and I are going to Maui in May! I don't think I'll be kayaking...or snorkling. :-(
Bruce just out for a nibble.
Right..... like THAT'S ever gonna happen.... a kayaker out-paddling a swimming great white? Get real.
Alright, it's official now, the sharks have set up their own version of Animal Planet, entitled "People Planet". The shark following the kayaker is the shark world's equivalent of Steve Irwin, always running after and accosting unsuspecting People (animals in Irwin's case) and showing them off to the camera!
Okay, I've worked my giggles off now. This is probably the strangest shark article on FR in a while. A really big, predatory fish swimming along behind a man in a kayak, not doing anything other than watching him for all of fifteen minutes?
Mayhap it was just curious, probably had never seen anything like that before and wanted to find out exactly what it was. Good thing the other boat showed before the fishy stalker conducted a few physical tests.
