The sharks of goofy foot island.

The men in gray suit’s.

Was a beautiful day on the island, the water and sky had the same color, they both matched each other with this toques blue, the waves were running about 3-5 ft that day, nothing big but they had perfect form, not one peace of water out of place, I’d been surfing about a hour and I see this shadow, since the water is so clear I could see it from afar, most of the time it’s just a clump of seaweed and think nothing of it, but little did I know that I was going to be face to face with a shark, so as I paddle over a wave I see that shadow right in front of me, I focused my eyes and there he was, I was shocked and twitched with fear and at the same moment the shark also twitched with fear, I actually scared him when I moved so fast, we were eye to eye but he wasn’t there to attack, he was just cruising by doing his thing and I happened to see him, than I start to wonder how many others had swam by me in all my years that I hadn’t seen. Just goes to show that sharks are more curious than anything. Mahalo.
