I'm not concerned too much about fish as they just bounce off the foil

I've run into sharks 3 times now though, and they're big enough that it stops you dead and throws you off.... which is not exactly the place you want to be body dragging back to your board...

You might didn't know. Sharks are fish...
i disagree... there are fish, and then there are FISH

see the difference? :rollgrin:

I've hit a huge manta ray with my surfboard I flew off the board spectators at the beach said the manta breached the surface and flew for many yards. I felt bad for the manta but he was fine and kept swimming around the area for a couple of hours my board on the other hand tore out 2 fin boxes.

unfortunately with the foil I've hit a big turtle (he seemed ok) lots of jelly fish and even a big squid :(

never hit anything riding the Zeeko Spitfire because it whistles so loud I think the fish run away. I did manage to get the spitfire hung up on a fishing line with a midsize shark still attached on the other end not sure who was more freaked out on that encounter 😮
