    Fatal Shark Attack in Central California




    Don't watch this one before bed, it may give you nightmares.. this was taken two days before the attack pretty close to where it occurred.

    Another death they'll chalk up as a coronavirus death I'm sure. Had he just stayed home to protect himself from the virus, he would have never lose his life to that shark.

    Obviously, the shark was violating the mask law.

    Apparently the last time there was a fatal shark attack in Northern California was in 2004, and it was an abalone diver.

    Northern California is notorious for sharks and shark attacks, but haven't had any fatalities in a while.

    Central California had at least a couple fatal attacks since then, two that I can recall were at the same beach, which does not get surfed very often because it is notorious for shark sightings. It is the closest piece of land to the great white shark birthing ground which is just west of the channel islands.

    Southern California has had a fatal attack on a swimmer, another swimmer and a lobster diver were wounded not too long ago as well.

    Surfers seem to be fairly safe from shark attacks compared to swimmers, bodyboarders and divers. If you look at the shear number of surfers in the water on any given day on any given stretch of beach, there are far more surfers than ocean swimmers (not waders) and divers and bodyboarders for that matter.. Even San Francisco's ocean beach attracts up to thousands of surfers on a given day if the conditions are good, and the Farallon Islands which is the local mating ground for great whites is offshore only about 30 miles from there.

    But it can definitely happen.

    As far as I know, every single shark attack was on someone who wasn't grounded properly. Sharks have strong electroreceptors which is why grounding before swimming is so critical to safety.

    It happened sometime after they Made America Great Again. You see, I grew a bit weary from all the winning.

    Remember the number one rule of libertarianism: Bad things don't just happen; bad things require dark and insidious forces to make them happen.

    Aptos. Been to that beach many times. Don't really go in the ocean much anymore unless I am snorkeling with a mask, so I can see them.

    North of there a few miles the coast is wrapped by a thick kelp bed and has some of the best and most crowded surfing in the world (Santa Cruz). The thick kelp beds keep the sharks out and nobody has ever been attacked there...





    But go more than 4 miles north of Santa Cruz, or that whole coastline to the south and down toward Monterrey and it's a different story. Plenty of people surf there regularly and I have no problem paddling out for the occasional session in areas like that, but it is a bit nerve racking.. and I don't think I would want to move somewhere that I surfed regularly that had that kind of problem with sharks. But who knows.

    Deep water heebie jeebies. I don't like to swim in water where I can't see the bottom, fresh or salt.
