Thanks Aaron.

I can't believe I missed all this today went for an early ish. Home and back past on the bike about 12, saw the Maritime boat out there and the jet skis. Figured it was all part o the 'happenings' going down. Place was like a Bruegel painting. Stalls, music etc... In the park, a skate demo of sorts, board riders comp, swarms of Limey prats about in red shirts, hipsters,suburbanites Everyman and their dog was down here today.
I suspect it was a staged thing with the whale.

What I want to know is why is that whale out there still alive. Had that been a shark attack people would be out there trying to kill the poor Chunt.

This ain't Queensland or sth Oz.
It was bound to happen, and will prolly happen again.
I've had them pass under a boat off cape banks a few time last year while I had commercial divers below at 30mtrs oblivious to them.

This is getting out of hand. We may need to cull the whales.

All of them.

When a backpacking free-spirit can't experience the joys of surfing bondi beach something needs to be done.

A whale and calf swam into ti tree bay last year when I was surfing.
50 metres away from the rock.

Highlight of my surfing career

I think the one that came in close to me in Maui was checking out if it wanted to root me. It was prime whale rooting season over there. In fact I have never seen (or heard under water) so many whales in my life. It was a discrace. They call it the whale super highway between Maui and Molokai. Basically they come down from Alaska to the warm waters of Maui to root. They come right up to people in boats and SUPs and the like. How they allow that to happen is beyond me. SUPs and whales to clog up the waterways. As I say its a discrace.

Thanks for the heads up. Might see if I can jump on my paddle board and head out there to harpoon it's fat arse. Next time you go for a surf just remember that thing has weed and pooed in the water. Filthy thing

Surprised the Prime Moron isn't there for a photo op and a chance to say to the whale that it has to zip.
It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again
