I don't go in the ocean, the beach sucks. But hey if it's your thing then go for it. My state has had a record amount of fatalities from sharks the past year. Then again we live right next to seafood superhighway so it's just how it is.
I went to school with a guy whose dad got bitten fatally by a G.W so **** that noise.
If it's hot I'll have a cold shower, you can go and hop into a steam bath car to a beach, get sand in your fanny and roll the dice. I'll be on my 4th beer by the time you get back.
They don't surf cause its always freezing. Sharks meh. My boss is a mad surfer, literally lives 50m from the beach on the Gold Coast. Sees sharks every day when surfing. Says you need to forget about em. Down south, where its cold, bigger more dangerous sharks, more often.
