    Bro I think that shark was trying to do you a favor by putting your board out of it's misery. The foam in that thing is darker than a bottle of scotch.

    That is one helluva story he has to tell the grandkids. And, Bill Buley, nicely told.

    I've always been told Sharks are incredibly sensitive about their eyes. Good job, Jeff!!! Glad to hear you're alright and that you didn't panic. Hope to see you surfing soon!
