Surf down south is the moral of that story.
Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision.

I suspected as much. Foot injury 20 metres from shore.
But the report led into a great speil about how Australia Ianthe worst in the world for shark deaths.

And WA is the worst. When you take into account the surfer population it must be at least 10 times more likely for a surfer to be killed by a shark in WA

The last time somebody died of a shark attack at Manly was in the notorious summer of 1935, when four people died in a month on various Sydney beaches from attacks, mostly by great whites. That hastened the placement of nets off four of those beaches, including Manly. In the first season the nets caught over 650 sharks.

So, you know, a wobbegong bite on the foot is somewhat neither here nor there is it.

Clear them away so humans can blunder about inshore waters free from harm!

Rainbow Bay used to be called Shark Bay. Name change to encourage tourists.

Remember that guy from Mona Vale that claimed to have seen a great white shark attack?

Turns out the reliable witness ran a shark spotting business and it was a wobbegong.

Remember that homeless ice junky in Bondi that claimed to be attacked by a white shark only to be outed as a fraud. He cut himself breaking into a house.
