just 6 days now. Feels like countdown to Christmas. Who wouldn't want an Alice 4.2 decal to put on a old board like this one? And a FADER wetsuist in Grey. And a Dualskin Lycra suit in Blue/green. And Ill get new Bondi blue board inlay 6'2. And A PB5 in grey 6. And i may as well get a J Bay green 6'4 to complete the set. We thought we were ready last Christmas to launch, every we need to get right was ready. The algorithm for the wetsuits and board patterns was completed and functioning time after time correctly. The in water MOE measurements backed it up. All we needed was a couple manufacturers to make what we needed.Turns out the shark's reactions were the easy part. We have them now and should be in full production of wetsuits, lycra, decals and inlay boards by Christmas.
This poor Reefie had almost double it s length in monofilament trailing behind it. I hate seeing them like this. Hopefully the hook rusts or falls out sooner rather than later and doesn’t cause any more harm to this beautiful animal.
So, question. When you hear the word SHARK how many of you immediately visualize this type of shark and this type of behavior? If you don't, what do you think of?? Is it a problem most people imagine great whites as the typical looking shark, even though their famous jaws and body is a minority look within the 500+ species of shark? Is it time we start shifting public perception and open their eyes to the majority of shark species that receive little or no attention? White sharks are firmly in the limelight and one false move by humans towards these sharks means it spreads all over the press like wildfire. Meanwhile many other smaller and less dramatic looking sharks are being abused and overfished as the public turn a blind eye to the not so famous fish. EXAMPLE- The Shark Trust launched a 'No Limits' campaign back in 2014 to highlight sharks such as blue sharks, tope, smoothhounds, catsharks and surprisingly short fin mako sharks all of which have absolutely NO catch limits even though the species account for over 97% of reported Atlantic shark landings. What does this mean in simple terms? Fishermen can catch and kill as many of these species of sharks as they like, there's simply no limit on what quantity can be caught and killed. So, the next time you hear the word SHARK, think past the white shark image and consider the masses that don't receive as much attention, because it's about time we start shouting about the weird sharks, the boring looking sharks, the deep dwelling sharks we never see or hear about, the unpopular sharks, the tiny sharks and the ugly sharks that need us just as much as 'JAWS' does.

I had the amazing opportunity to meet @nicksantonastasso @oceanramsey and @juansharks yesterday on @oneoceandiving boat tour at north shore, it was so beautiful and amazing to see these creatures swim around you so gracefully and peacefully 🦈 (we also saw plenty ahi 😋🐟) mahalo to all these amazing people for inspiring me in so many ways! 🦈 Sharks are so hurt by people around the world, while Hawaiians often treat them with respect for what they do for the `āina, people around the world will do long line fishing and finning, killing massive amounts of creatures including sharks. Apparently, many sharks are on the endangered species list, and almost 100 million sharks, whereas only 19 people a year globally are killed by them, making one human dead for every 5 million+ sharks. While it is tragic that people pass away from sharks, it’s awful to see these beautiful creatures gliding around only to know so many have already passed away. 🦈 Help @oneoceandiving and help contribute to save these beautiful creatures by sharing awareness and teaching them the true facts on sharks. - - - - - Shot with canon G7x ii and ikelite housing - - - - #hipsterexplorers#suspectmag#moodygrams#hnnsunrise#alohabones#venturehawaii#hangloose#canonusa#canonfanphoto#canon#teamcanon#globalhi#hawaiitag#ig_oahu #sunset_stream #pocket_waters #ftwotw#sharks#sharkfinsoup#stopfinning#savesharks
I keep reading and hearing about people wanting to kill sharks for attacking people right now. I think this is sad and crazy. I am 10 and even I know that this will not work. Not just because I love sharks. But because you can’t kill everything that hurts you!!!!! You just can’t. I am so sorry for the people that were hurt. I feel bad for them. Nobody wants to be hurt. If people could just learn about sharks they would understand they don’t want to hurt us. If they do hurt someone, it is by accident. They might mistake us for food or maybe the water is cloudy or maybe we shouldn’t be swimming in certain areas! For as many times as people are in all the oceans and seas all over the world for all different reasons, shark attacks are so rare. I hope people start to understand this!!! This is me swimming in the ocean with a big dusky shark. I was not afraid and even if he hurt me I would not want to hurt him back or kill him. He is a shark being a shark. #stopthesharkcull#duskyshark#coexist #savesharks#sharkeducation#sciencesavessharks#stopkillingsharks#sharkconservation#swimwithsharks#sharkdiving#dontbeafraid
@abc4explore - A Great White Shark hunting at sunrise in South Africa! Making use of stealthy ambush tactics and changing light-levels, Great White Sharks can effectively and beautifully hunt ultra agile seals with spectacular aerial acrobatics! It makes perfect sense that Great White Sharks are highly successful apex predators, they've survived 5 mass extinctions on planet earth, outlived all the dinosaurs and even have their very own week of televsion! And no matter how many times you see Great White Sharks hunting and launching themselves out of the water, it still blows you away every time, just how energetic, powerful and majestic these predators are! #ilovesharks#airjaws#sharksarenotbad#lovesharks#savesharks#coexistwithsharks#abc4explore#greatwhite#shark#southafrica
