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

yes the terrifying impact of a Wobbegong
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.
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.

Remember that massive tard from Lennox who disappeared ... yeah there wasn't a shark involved in that either.

I tip my hat to anyone who surfs north of the Central Coast to the Gold Coast from the months September to February

Happened at the bar. Never surfed the joint but have been very tempted. Once saw 4-6 foot lefts bowled up and walling forever, in near perfect condition. Nobody out and the whole set up looked sharky as Fk.

Yep. It’s dodgy as fuck. I reckon you’ve got about 10 minutes in the water before you get chomped. Stay away everyone. Especially from Ballina north.

Same. I was there in August. Looked really nice, but noone out. Thought that was strange so went to Valla instead.

Apparently there were a few sharks out at Tama today. Two grey nurses, hammerhead and a Great White they reckon.
