It's liberating too. I feel free, where else can you just piss all over the place and not suffer the consequences?

scary as hell, but i think it's photoshopped. I do a lot of surfing/boogie boarding, and waves just aren't that transparent. There's usually so much silt stirred up that you can't see anything past an inch. I guess maybe at a rocky beach, in really bright light where the waves broke really really deep, MAYBE.
And yes, i would totally mess myself if i ever saw that.

Just don't be dangling your feet or arms at that point. Makes you look like a seal. Good eats to a shark.

I have the same pic, but I'm also curious to know if it's real. Whatever the case may be, I love sharks, but if I were in that situation, I would probably not only wet my pants, but shit them as well!!!!

nice pic but reality is that sharks dont like to be beaten into the surf by waves. They are mostly bottom feeders just beyond the breakers
But I bet that could very quickly improve my surfing ability to get into shore in the most expedient manner!

I think I'd hop on my board pretty quick!

I've been in a similar situation surfing and it turned out to be dolphin thank god... infact dolphins like to make surfers crap there wetsuits! I think they really have a sick sense of humor! Serious! I think that in the pic it is a dolphin, although sharks have been seen in waves like that, looking at the dorsal and tail it is dolphin.
From experience I've been out in the water at 6am when it's cold and there's just a handful of us and it's cloudy and overcast and you're sitting in the lineup waiting for a wave and you just up and move for no reason because you get spooked. And it may not always be in your head, you realize that lightning could strike and we are in there territory. Respect the ocean because if you dont'..... it has a funny way of earning it. No shit! And Amen!

I've had the crap scared out of me more than a few times............ever been diving and look over to see a an eight foot Bull within ten feet of you and never knew it was there?......worse yet I was bug hunting and had a freakin huge Hammer-Head swimming around me.
I'm with Rip.....looks like a dolphin to me as well. I'm always at ease when I see a dolphin..........means there are no sharks around.

I was snorkling in the Inian Ocean when a 7' black tip came at me so, taking the advice of one of "good" seal/diver buds "oh just hit him in the nose" so I did and he left me alone.... well, we were at a beach party at the dive locker that night when I told him he laughed loud as hell told the CWO that was there and was like I was kidding! Then the CWO took me aside to say you could be one of us ... blah blha!

Actually, if you look at the pic, its a Great White Shark. real or not......Way to big for a dolphin and it has all the classic lines of a white shark.
Shit, it could be a grouper and I'd still freakout!!!!!!
10-06-2003, 02:07 PM #27
Whatever it is shark, dolphin, photoshop or not it looks pretty cool.
Hey, anyone have that photoshop picture of the great white coming out of the water trying to bite a helicopter? I was going to attach it but I can't find it.

Source: National Geographic
A photograph that has been circulating on the internet showing a shark leaping out of the water to attack a helicopter, is a fake. The composite image, which claims to be National Geographic's "Photo of the Year," was spliced together from a U.S. Air Force photo taken near San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and a photo of a shark from South Africa.
The photo of a breaching great white shark was taken by South African photographer Charles Maxwell [see the link to his Web site at the bottom of this page]. The Air Force photo of an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter was taken by Lance Cheung. They were spliced together by an unknown person, and reportedly began making the rounds on e-mail in August 2001.
"I'd like to make contact with the person who did this—not to get him or her into trouble, but because it's a lot of fun and it is a good job," Maxwell said. "However, I must make clear that I would not like to see this happen to one of my photographs again. It is wrong to take images from a Web site without permission." Maxwell said he has sold quite a few photographs as a result of the attention the hoax has drawn to his work.
The e-mail containing the hoax photo says:
AND YOU THINK YOUR [sic] HAVING A BAD DAY AT WORK !!
Although this looks like a picture taken from a Hollywood movie, it is in fact a real photo, taken near the South African coast during a military exercise by the British Navy.
It has been nominated by National Geographic as "THE photo of the year".
Other versions of the e-mail credit it to Geo, a German periodical similar to National Geographic magazine.
Nationalgeographic.com has received hundreds of visits each day due to this photo since the latest round of the e-mail began. These visitors can be identified by their searches for such strings as "photo of the year" and "shark helicopter." E-mail inboxes have also been deluged with inquires about the photo.
Sharks jump out of the water—a behavior known as "breaching"—when they hunt seals. The shark uses an explosive surprise attack to snatch the seal before it can swim away, resulting in the shark throwing itself into the air.
Maxwell took his photo at False Bay, South Africa. Though False Bay is perhaps the best place to see sharks feeding on seals, he said, it is difficult to get to. "Anyone wanting to hire a boat to see this amazing spectacle must work through the only registered white shark operators in False Bay, Chris Fallows and Rob Lawrence of African Shark Encounters."
Maxwell said that he "cheated a bit" to get the photo. Though he has seen as many as ten breaches in a single morning, it is difficult to predict where a shark will be seen. So he towed a seal decoy made of carpet behind his boat, in order to attract a breaching shark.
Maxwell has worked with National Geographic several times. He was a production facilitator for the April 2000 white sharks story in National Geographic magazine and the television documentary made that same year. Most recently, he assisted David Doubilet and Kennedy Warne on the South Africa story in the August 2002 issue of National Geographic magazine.
