Fatal Shark Attack In San Diego

Friday, April 25th, 2008

The first shark attack in San Diego in forever happened this morning at Fletcher Cove, Solana Beach. Fox 6 reports the victim’s leg was severed below the knee and he bled to death. The attack comes after a week in which a 3-4 foot baby great white was spotted cruising around Cardiff reefs. As is often the case during events like this, the Surfer Mag forum already has a post with links to more info.

It’s kind of a weird scene here in Cardiff, with a helicopter urging everyone out of the water over a PA. While we are waiting for more info from the area news, check out this list of fatal shark attacks in the US and these accounts of white shark attacks in La Jolla Cove.

Shelter Surf Shop New Art Opening This Saturday, Bonus Slide Show

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Shelter is ON it with their art openings. This Saturday (4/26) night’s show by Bill Livingston, is titled “If You Don’t Surf, Dont Start” (a photographic exhibition of those who do). Hehe, the title is just in time for summer. I’m going to miss it due to being inland, and that’s a bummer cause Kim and Graham put on fun events.

BONUS! While I’m on the topic, here’s a slideshow from last month’s opening, Sacred Ride. I missed this one too.

Hold Your Breath

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

You can hold your breath for over 3 minutes. The catch is, you’ll never be able to prepare for doing so while falling from a 30 foot high Mavericks lip. Still, it’s worth a read before you next freediving trip.

Video of Chad Marshall, of recent Surfer’s Journal and other fame, riding an Alaia. Watch it to the end. He lands a floater you won’t believe is finless. Via Oceans Rising.

The Oceans Are Rising

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Dusty Smity has started a new blog called Ocean Rising Surfboards. This new post he’s created out of some photos from a trip Maggie and I were on last summer, hits the surf travel nail on the head for me… without so much as a pixel of a wave or surfboard. Pure heart and soul.
