That's me and scarboard. She's an 18 foot, pregnant great white shark, one of the largest in the world. All the sharks we saw were beautiful, but I liked scarboard the best. Such an incredible experience to dive Guadalupe island. #scarboard #guadalupewhitesharks #guadalupeisland #greatwhiteshark #thetripofalifetime

The #big, the #beautiful, the one and only “#Scarboard.” At #IslaGuadalupe we have close to 200 different individual sharks that have been documented in the Photo ID record.  Photo ID is actually quite easy in clear water locations like Guadalupe and especially with Great #WhiteSharks due to the striking clear contrast of the upper grey tone portion of the body to the white underbelly (called countershading.) Current studies from #woodsholeoceanographicinstitution estimate #greatwhitesharks to live to 70 years or more, we don’t know how old Scarboard is but I hope with the photo ID I  can document her return to the island throughout my lifetime…I hope she lives longer than I do. The last time I saw her was 4 years ago and she was much smaller than she is now. Presently the observed trend is that the largest females return to isla Guadalupe about every third year.  There is still so much we have yet to discover about these sharks but one big benefit to developing tecnology is the new tags that act as receivers to give us an insight to just how solitary this species really is.  Its exciting to learn more and spend another season with the White sharks in this region of the world.  #SaveSharks #SaveTheGreatWhiteShark #WhiteShark #WhitePointer #SharkScience #SharkBiologist #Freediving #scubadivingwithsharks #DivingWithSharks #LearnAboutSharks #HelpSaveSharks #SharkInspired #marineBiology @oneoceandiving @oneoceanconservation @oneoceandesigns @oneoceanresearch @oneoceanglobal @oneoceaneducation @oneoceaninspired @waterinspired

This week in Asheville has been one of the greatest adventures I've had in my life. I met some of my closest friends whom I've known from an online forum I joined in my junior year of high school, hung out with some of the greatest women in music (whom I look up to), and had my first solo adventure in a strange and wonderful city. I can't wait to get back to Austin and hug my friends. And maybe hug some strangers, too. #Asheville #LoriBarbero #JackOffJill #JoJForever #ScarBoard

Another powerful image of #Scarboard from the master himself, Shark Behaviour Specialist and Co-Founder of One Ocean Diving @oneoceandiving , Juan Oliphant @juansharks on assignment in Isla Guadalupe with one of my very good friends, Marine Biologist Ocean Ramsey @oceanicramsey through our friends at Water Inspired Conservation @waterinspired - Photo by #juanoliphant on assignment in Isla Guadalupe for @oneoceandiving. This is another view of Scarboard a very large female white shark that both @juansharks and @oceanicramsey have been seeing there for the last 10 years. Like rhinos hunted for there horns, white sharks the size of Scarboard are hunted as trophy fish for their jaws and fins. Red listed as endangered animals white shark are in need of serious protection. Female white sharks have to reach 14ft before becoming sexually mature which could take the average white shark 30 years according to latest studies. #helpsavesharks @oneoceandiving @oneoceanresearch @oneoceanglobal @oneoceaneducation @oneoceandesigns @oneoceanconservation @waterinspired #helpsavesharks #savesharks #oneocean #savetheocean #travel #explore #ApexPredatorNotMonster @exploreorg

Photo by @juansharks #Scarboard. Aloha attention friends:: So sad to hear bad news so soon after diving with these #Beauty if you have a few extra minutes please read this post and share your sentiments written by @scottwilsonimagery says "Lethal shark nets are to be set on Ballina shire beaches, following an unprecedented number of attacks by mostly sub adult white sharks that visit this aggregation area as part of a huge migratory route that takes these animals to New Zealand, South Australia and beyond. The Nets will indiscriminately kill baby whales, dolphins, turtles rays as well as harmless sharks and large fish. It's highly doubtful that the nets will prevent shark attack but they will definitely decimate marine life in a "hotspot" ecosystem. Please send @mikebairdmp a message expressing your disappointment and voice your objection to the shark nets.#backwardthinking #nosharknets #nosharkcull #saveoursharks #saveourseas #sharks #ocean #@ocean #whale #whales #byronbay #ballina @mikebairdmp #diving #australia #marine #peace #nature #wildlife" #SharkAwareness #OceanConservation #GreatWhiteShark #ApexPredatorNotAMonster #misunderstood #BEAUTYNOTABEAST

Biggest shark of the 2016 Guadalupe shark season....the gigantic "Scarboard". This mega female dwarfed the cages as she swam by checking out our cage divers...#sharkdivingxperts #megashark #scarboard #guadalupeisland #greatwhiteshark #2016season

Did she have her pups yet, @juansharks? #Scarboard #Shark #SpiritAnimal #NewInk **^^Top Shark Photo credit: @juansharks; **^^SkinArt credit: @thesearescars
