The public’s appetite for shark-based programming seems inexhaustible, so a race between Michael Phelps and a great white shark should be the spectacle of the year. Well, it turns out Discovery Channel didn’t even try, and it was just a simulation.


South African diver Johan Potgieter survived an encounter with a great white while diving. Let’s not call it an “attack”, as that upsets a lot of people. But while Potgieter was 19 metres under the water near Skipskop reefs off Cape Town, he was looking the other way when this happened. Potgieter possibly saved his own life by giving it a good poke. When the shark bolted, he made for the surface.

The incident is the second in two days at the notorious break. “That is huge,” Fanning exclaimed. “Look at that thing, that thing is a beast, at least they saw this one. I am glad they got us out of the water. Those things are just submarines, however long they are, the roundness of them as well … they are big, big beasts.” Fanning, who would eventually lose the heat, saw the footage for the first time when he was recapping the day’s action and was taken aback by the size of the shark.


In lawless waters, whale sharks can get ridden like a circus elephant. These guys go full rodeo on the animal, and it doesn’t seem to mind at all except for the one idiot who hops onto its head. Doing this anywhere besides the Middle East will probably result in prison.


Fish stories are famous for being exaggerated, but this particular fish story has the video to prove it’s true. A fisherman was able to reel in a large hammerhead shark off of Panama City Beach in Florida. Curtis Williams was flying a drove over the shore when he saw the epic catch-and-release encounter. “I was vacationing at the beach and was going to video a nice pleasant sunset, I noticed a man wading in the water and something close to him. I brought the drone down and quickly realised a monster hammerhead was next to him.”


Earlier this month, it was announced that 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps had grown tired of racing humans and will instead race a great white shark. That race, which will air on July 23 for Discovery’s Shark Week, now has a super intense trailer with an appropriately dramatic name: Phelps Vs. Shark: The Battle for Ocean Supremacy.


A crew of keen anglers was forced to hold on when a massive shark decided to nudge and nibble at their boat while they were fishing off the state’s South-East coast. The great white, estimated at about 4.5 metres long, spent about 10 minutes circling the boat while occasionally biting the motor and nudging the vessel, causing it to rock back and forth. After staring at the shark in disbelief for several minutes, fisherman Andrew Russell managed to capture part of the close encounter on his phone, posting it to Facebook.


A 15-foot Great White shark began to thrash violently in the shallows along the Sea of Cortez shoreline. Dale Pearson took his camera and got this insane footage of the beast, discovering massive wounds along its back from a boat’s propeller.


“We were spearfishing near Middle Sambo Reef off Boca Chica in the Keys on Sunday when this shark came out of nowhere. He first went at my dive buddy Justyn but immediately turned toward me. He first bit my left fin then took a chunk out of the right one before biting my leg and cutting the speargun line.”


The movie “Jaws” makes it seem like sharks prowl the seas looking to eat the relatives and friends of specific town police chiefs. But in reality, sharks don’t particularly like the taste of human, and most shark attacks are a case of mistaken identity. For example, you’re a surfer floating on your board, but from the waters below you look a lot like a sea lion. So, the shark goes in for a nibble.


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.
