Hey that's my beach, Simon.

I surfed the south side of the point yesterday, with the resident pod of 12 dolphins shooting the waves all around. Mid winter. Water 21C.

Bliss!

What about those 25 foot long great whites?

They're up the West Coast of Africa at the moment, seal breeding going on in Mosselbay.

I'm more worried about being attacked by a 7 foot kangaroo.

Its always a bit funny listening to people from countries that have bears, lions and other large land based carnivores getting edgy about the bities in australia. With the possible exception of crocs up north there is almost no chance of having something eat you on purpose in Australia - snakes, spiders bite etc generally occur as defense mechanisms and most shark attacks are not fatal, which seems to indicate the sharks don't think we taste very nice.

I've got a snail in my back garden with a rather vicious sense of humour..

"Most Shark attacks are not fatal"… Phew… that’s a relief off my mind.. There was me being all silly and worried about bleeding to death in case a Great White decided to snack on one of legs..

Australia should come with a Public Health warning or at least a sign that says “ Warning : Humans Stay Away”..

There is a 99.99999999999999% chance of not getting bitten by a Great White shark whilst swimming in Bournemouth Dorset. I like those odds. :)
