Sharks, surfers & surf photographers

This debate is all about how surfers, and in particular, surf photographers feel about sharks… After all, they do work and play in their domain! Sightings and even encounters are not unheard of, as many surf photographers can testify to! So we thought it would be an interesting topic with all the hype there is in the news recently about shark attacks…

We asked a few surf photographers (and surfers/artists) how they felt about swimming/surfing in the sea, knowing it is possible to encounter a shark, and if it preys on their mind? If they fear them? If they’ve had a close encounter, witnessed one, had a scare (real or paranoia)…?
