Fisherman Terry Selwood was sitting on an esky in the middle of his small boat, enjoying the solitude of an afternoon’s fishing off the NSW North Coast, when all hell broke loose in the middle of the ocean. Out of the corner of his eye, the 73-year-old saw something launch itself over the side of his 5½-metre vessel, which was bobbing about two kilometres off the coast of Evans Head.


When you spend any amount of time in the ocean, you end up rationalizing why you won’t get attacked by a shark. You might tell yourself: We’re not their food source. They’re looking for fish or seals. Are they even hungry? And then something like this happens: A shark in Monterey Bay attacked a man in a sea kayak, a harrowing incident caught on film by two onlookers. “I was sure I was done. It was like a horror movie. The shark came toward me, dropped the kayak, then dove straight down below me where I couldn’t see it.”


TMZ got Laird in Malibu, naturally, and asked him about the rash of shark sightings on SoCal beaches lately. He downplayed the danger, unless you’re a woman. Laird’s like the closest thing to a real-life Aquaman, so he qualifies as an expert on water activities.


A torn ligament in his left leg isn’t about to stop Greg Norman from getting in his intense workout sessions. The Shark tore an aponeurosis in his leg after an injury sustained in a casual tennis match three weeks ago, and was put in a cast to keep the muscle (likely his soleus) immobile for six weeks. But just because his leg was immobile didn’t mean Norman doesn’t still go Beast Mode. “Just had to improvise,” he said.


“In this episode of Happily Stoked, Sebastian Zietz and Friends hit the beautiful location of Margaret River in the South West of Western Australia, the boys score fun waves and good times including a 10 for Seabass at North Point. Then moving off to Bells Beach on the Surf Coast of Victoria for a bonus section of long right hand walls and turns.” – @happilystoked. Photo via: @woodrowmedia


When your girl is being clingy. Tug of war with a shark? Now I have seen it all. All the shark really wanted was a frosty cold beer, but this Aussie fisherman doesn’t break his back all week to shout some other c*nt a beer.


The first official trailer for It Came from the Desert is finally here. The movie is based off of the 1989 cult favorite video game of the same name from Cinemaware on the Amiga and later the TurboGrafx-16 console. The game is inspired by multiple 1950s B movies, but mostly takes its cues from the 1954 classic Them!, where giant mutated ants become a national threat. Now it’s time for It Came from the Desert to make its big screen debut and it looks fun as hell.


47 Meters Down has unveiled its second trailer, and it looks like it’s shaping up to be another intense addition to the well-trod genre of shark thrillers. Such films have been frequent fare for the big screen ever since the release of Jaws, Steven Spielberg’s seminal 1975 blockbuster. In recent years, their output has somewhat waned, but last year’s The Shallows seems to have reignited interest in shark-infested horror flicks.


A video shot from an Orange County Sheriff’s Department helicopter gives an overhead view of great white sharks hanging around near shore in Capistrano Beach as officers warn paddle boarders and swimmers near the surfline. “You are paddle boarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks. They are advising you exit the water in a calm manner. The sharks are as close as the surfline.”


Fish instinctively roam in schools because there’s safety in numbers. If a predator moves in, you’re much less likely to get eaten if you have a couple thousand buddies with you, each of whom looks equally tasty to the hungry diner. The same is true for people when we abandon our trophic position on dry land and enter the domain of large, toothy predators. Surfer David Woodward almost discovered that the hard way.


While battling a good-sized tarpon, fisherman Ronnie Green suddenly had two challenges on his hands: trying to land the tarpon and keeping the tarpon away from a huge hammerhead shark that happened upon the scene. It’s no secret that hammerhead sharks enjoy a tasty meal of tarpon, so who could blame this 15-footer for being opportunistic and trying to steal Green’s fish?


“After a battle for 15 seconds I found myself locked in the shark’s jaws as it thrashed a chunk from the top of my right thigh. I was lucky not to loose my sea cucumber instead. It was a quick and regrettable decision that I realise was a stupid move.” – Josh ferret Neille.


This cam girl put on a show for the marine life off the coast of Florida, but the sharks didn’t have money to tip her with so one just bit her instead. Looks pretty fake to us, but who cares, it’s worth watching anyway for… reasons.


Hooper! Tie another buoy on! In a video uploaded online by Craig Hudson, the monster shark slowly drifts through the water and comes terrifyingly close to their small vessel 15km off the coast of Australia. After realising the shark was as big as the 16ft boat they were in, Mr Hudson said he quickly cut all of his fishing lines and instructed his son to sit in the bottom of the boat. ‘I was going to get out of there ASAP but thought I would get some footage as it is a once in a lifetime chance,’ he said.


In a battle between man and shark, only the one with the baseball bat will survive. These fishermen crushed the previous Mako record, and put their struggle to capture the beast online!


Dramatic drone footage from high above Fingal Bay in Port Stephens has captured the full extent of a shark hunt off the popular strip. Running mullet have given the sharks plenty of incentive to slice through the clear green waters of the bay, forcing authorities to close the beach to swimming, and drawing crowds onto the sand to watch.


“So many people apparently suggesting a GoFundMe for him so after a French one here is the English version. Baboo needs your help to create himself a collection of prosthesis to keep embracing life to the fullest! He needs one really quick to start rehabilitation on two legs after his return to France and one later for competition to be able to ski, surf, ect. We are counting on you and your generosity. Thank you for all your support from across the planet, we truly appreciate that! – Go Fund Me.


For seals, turtles and other tasty marine life, this might be the last image they see before they get snaffled up by a great white. Nerve-jangling footage captured off the coast of South Africa shows a hungry shark breaching with its mouth open wide – offering a front row view down its throat. The close-up clip shows the large carnivorous fish flashing its razor-sharp teeth and pink undersides of its gills with its black eyes shining bright. Incredible stuff.
