A Photographer Puts You Face-to-Face With Sharks, by Swimming Uncaged | "100 million a year are killed people. New scientific study released that the number has climbed to over a 100 Mil. We gotta do what we can to put a stop to this or our oceans fragile Eco system is going to end up with just jellyfish." Michael Muller | WIRED.com
Between the months of November and April, the waves at "Pipe" (Banzai Pipeline) on the north shore of Oahu can be awesome and extremely dangerous. This surfer successfully navigated this wave during an April swell. Amazing to watch surfers ride these monsters.
People often ask about how to know if you are in a dangerous situation with a shark. Body language is a big clue. This is an oceanic white tip - considered third most dangerous/aggressive shark in the world. He is not smiling at you. Slightly arched back, downward angled pectoral fins, head on posture: these are all signals that this shark views you as a threat and will soon become aggressive. Get out of the water.
