Crazy Moment of the Day!

0113_killer_whaleI’m a surfer, or so I’d like to think. I guess it made me think twice when I saw this photo. I can’t even imagine what I’d be feeling if I saw that on the other side of a crashing wave! This surfer in New Zealand swears he wasn’t fazed because “The surfer told reporters he once saw a shark eat a girl, so the Orca didn’t make him nervous. Who’s ready to shred some waves?!” (TMZ.com)

Seriously. I”d have pooped ma’self.

    And my wife thinks I’m crazy to be scared of the ocean. Of course I do live in Kansas so maybe she has a point.

    Haha, I’m from NZ, the Orca’s do eat large prey, but there’s never once been a report in NZ waters of one attacking a human.

    The guy in the picture has been surfing for near on 50 years and seen them/ swam/ surfed with them multiple times. The pod consisted of 2 calfs- the mother brought them closer to shore for the warmer waters.

    With the whales, its very much a case of live and let live. They are really beautiful, gentle animals
