🦈most of our fears are unnecessary as sharks have very little intention of eating us. In fact, they don’t even like the taste of humans. Shark sightings are often reported by surfers, proof that sharks don’t hunt humans as if they did the surfers wouldn’t have survived to retell their sighting stories or how the sharks passed them by. Being in the same water as a shark is a scary prospect for even the bravest of us, and having seen films such as Jaws and Deep Blue Sea we believe that our feelings are justified. However, sharks are not naturally malicious creatures and will not seek you out and bite a human for the sake of it. Surfers are confident that despite shark sightings and the past events of the odd shark attack, they will be able to surf relatively safely and return to the beach.
