    WOW,,,
    That's why I don't surf, hehe,,,
    I work down by the East Coast of North Miami on a 52 floor High Rise building, I was on the 30th floor looking at the beach and spotted 2 sharks about 30ft off the coast, that was enough for me...
    I'll stick to the swimming pools now, Tank You

    guys im pretty sure thats a dolphin
    the shape of the dorsal fin and the horizontal tail fin are a give away.
    dont u think if it was a shark that the surfer would be shittin his pants ?? lol
    i surfed for years wen i was a bit younger, and dolphins surfin with ya was pretty common, they scare the hell outta ya at first !

    I was swimming in the surf at Laguna Beach and bumbed into a sea lion. Scared me to death. I can imagine how the surfer feels even though it's a dolphin. Didn't realize how big dolphins can be.

    Wow! :eek: That would have freaked me out too! ;D

    By the way, I am still getting emails about this photo, much debate. Inspite of the photographer saying it's a dolphin, some of my friends are still convinced it's a shark. They say the size of it and the apparent verticalness of the tail fin are the reasons.

    Hey,
    Just wanted to say, that, that is a dolphin, a rather large one, but a dolphin just the same. Some one said something about the dorsal fin, being curved, which is right, but also if u look at the tail fin, you can see it does not run parallel with the dorsal fin, a sharks tail fin and dorsal stick straight up, so when they break the surface u actually see two fins most of the time. I surf and see both regularly, here in South Carolina. But, i have to agree, when ever u see a fin, its scary, all though they tell you if u see a dolphin there are no sharks near by. Well it's a big ocean, and a little me.
