When I lived in Newie my girlfriend and I went up there with another couple one weekend. We were all hanging in the bollocky at Samurai. We left the other couple and climbed up the big sand dune behind the beach. Came around a corner and found this naked guy Perving down at our friends and polishing the baseball bat furiously. He totally lost it and ran away. We cracked up.

Samurai Beach is known as a nudist beach, though it is not known if the swimmer was naked at the time of the attack
He was in his birthday suit

Well, to expand on the obvious....most critters get frisky and start breeding in the spring.

Contrary to a certain well known surf journalist and real surf members disdain Marine studies by the West Australian Government have found a greater risk of Great White attack in Winter and Spring due to cooler water temps which they prefer.

Very contested findings Beany and totally contrary to the data from the east coast.

DPI advise 3.52 m White Shark tagged and released from SMART drumline at SOUTH BALLINA, Ballina at 07:30 pm on 16 Nov 2018.

Water temp well over 20 at the moment.

That’s kind of a wishy washy statement.
“Risk” ?
Based on attack stats or the researcher’s opinion?

Well I'm not a marine biologist. I'm just refering to the report conclusions based on the stats.

White Sharks are observed to be pretty comfortable in water temps up to 24°C.

Well there's comfortable and then there's increased risk of attack which aren't the same thing.

The WA report found 'only' a third of attacks occurred in water temps of 20°C or over.

Isn't the water temperature in Margaret River below 20deg for about 2/3 of the year?
And whilst there are more users in the summertime, attacks often happen at the uncrowded lineups.
