Was surfing at yellow patch a few years back, nice hot summers day with some friends.
We got to the back and a friend of mine and I were chatting when all of a sudden we this HUGE grey figure swims underneath us. It was massive, I think I poohed my self a little. Its one of those moments when you brain just shuts down and you actually dont know what to do.
I have never been so frightened in my life and did not know if I should swim or just tread water, got on my board and left nothing dangling and just let the board drift for 10 mins before going as afast as I could for the shore.
