This morning during the final of the Jeffreys Bay Open pro surfing event in South Africa, former world champ Mick Fanning was attacked by a shark as he sat on his board waiting for a wave. He was knocked from the board but during a frantic, thrashing few moments was able to get to a safety patrol jet ski with nothing worse than a leash chewed in two pieces. The event is off for the day.
How about the cool ocean breeze recently? The water temp in the surf has dropped almost ten degrees in the last week back into the mid 70s providing natural AC for those within range of the sea breeze. The daily afternoon two inches of rain hasn't hurt either.
