SUP General / Re: Shark repellant

The medical term for sweaty feet is hyperhidrosis, while the term for smelly feet is bromhidrosis. Whether booties infused with necremones will smell worse than bronhidrosis is debatable, but it could work..  ;)

Stinkfoot puts the hurts on my nose ...

SUP General / Risk and Random occurance
« on: September 08, 2014, 05:56:11 PM »
As stated earlier,  the odds of being attacked by a shark are low.   But it happens.  The shark attack is a random happening,  and you have little to do to control it.   It's an odd kind of demon,  hiding dragon.   No-one that I or most of us know have been attacked or died of a shark attack.    But I bet if 50 of us were standing on a beach ready to surf and a Great White swam visibly by ,   not one person would rush on out to surf.   Maybe some would after a few minutes,  others in an hour,  some might call it a day.   But no-one has been eaten and we still change our behavior because we see something that we all know is there SOMEWHERE. 

All the good sports have risk.   You can drown,  but that's really under your control,  somewhat.  Motorcycle accidents,  Bear attacks, hang glider crashes all dangerous.     I ski in Wyoming every winter,  and over the last 17 years,  I have known about 8 people killed in avalanches or falls,  and many more serious injuries.   It's far more dangerous than shark attacks but you are the one in control,   it's somewhat random if a slope slides when you ski it,  but it's your decision on if you want to ski a particular shot on a risky day. 

To be honest,  I put the fear level of shark attack in seal infested waters in the same worry level as an avalanche,  but I pick my days to stay in safe zones and when to go for it.

Surf On,    might be good in RI tomorrow.

Took some shots from up on the cliff before the fog came in.   What a great day !

A few more here in the action sports gallery.

I only have 110 shots on my computer ....  outdone by eddie for sure,  but will get a few more on pbase.  Didn't really process these individually,  might repost some of the good ones.
