Jana Stefanova Posted almost 2 years ago Jim Toomey: Learning from Sherman the shark When surfing, you are entering their territory, their home. You do it on your own risk and must be aware of the danger. And if a shark appears and tries to bite you? Well, bad luck, but you knew what you were getting into. It´s the same thing as going on a walking safari in Africa and be surprised by the presence of lions. Surfing is your hobby and if you don´t feel safe, don´t do it. But if you love the ocean, you should totally support shark conservation.
