Could it be the same shark that took the young ladies arm and life?

I really want to know if he was sitting in the water.

He says he was in a turn and still on the board but don't know if it was a fast turn or a sitting turn.

When I lost my board in the bone yard yesterday I was freaking out. Only took me 30 seconds but felt like a lifetime.

We also had that shark that was biting the student's board in the water while she was on the beach talking to her instructor after coming in.

After the politicians ban the shark fins for food, this is bound to happen.

Hi. This happend today. I took two pics in the area. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of the kayaker. Those waters are getting very dangerous!
