Swami's is a surf spot in the San Diego area. It's incredibly close to the area we went beach camping a month ago. I mean, a couple miles away at best.
Several days ago this photo was taken:
A shark expert says that it's a 10-12 foot great white.
It didn't attack or even bump anyone.
One lifeguard on the news report said that it's another surfer duck diving, with his leg up. I'm not a surfer but I feel like the dude would be lower on the wave if it was a duck dive. I also feel like he's probably missing a foot. And he seems to thicken up around the waist. In general, if this is a surfer, he's trying his hardest to resemble a shark.
It could be photo shopped, I suppose.
But if there's a great white hanging around Encinitas, I'm kinda glad we were beach camping last month instead of this month. Because I can't keep my five-year-old out of the water and I like it better when white sharks aren't lurking about.
I'll take him to the pool tomorrow. I've never heard of a white shark being there.
