The following info is from New England Sharks.com
In coastal New England we have at least 15 shark species. The dominant large shark species likely to be caught by sport fishers on the north side of Cape Cod will be the blue, porbeagle, mako and thresher.
On the south side of the Cape, there will be those four species, plus an occasional tiger, dusky and sandbar shark (brown shark), and if you are lucky you might even see a white (protected) or a hammerhead specie. During the summer basking sharks will be seen everywhere in New England waters, offshore and in shallow water near shore. And yes those pesky dogfish will be everywhere.
The only way I know of, to actually avoid being eaten by a shark while out surfing is really quite simple. "Always, always, always, take into the water with you, someone who swims slightly slower than you."
That particular rule will be in my new upcoming RALPH's RULES Handbook. By the way, I had quite a few emails from people from all over the planet about my potential Ralph's RULES Handbook. Apparently, some of you thought that I didn't know, that some surfing rules (actually printed) already exist. I know they do. However, my rules will cover surfing etiquette, both in, and out, of the water. And there are some rules, that I feel need to be told, that have, quite frankly, not been written yet. I plan on enlightening the masses. Don't worry my friends, these rules can only benefit us all. Who knows where this will lead? Today, Surfing Rules, tomorrow, I could broker a Peace Plan in the Mid East.
Speaking of which, have any of you seen the some of the news coverage in Tyre where the surf has been going off? It's the strangest thing to watch. Perfect surf, rolling onto beautiful sandy beaches, while rockets explode in the background. That would be like Surfing the Wall and watching the Main beach erupt in fire and flames. It would be crazy. And you all must know by now, there are surfers over there waiting to go out. I mean, talk about hassles. Imagine having to wait for the sirens to stop before you venture out to catch a few waves? Are you kidding me?
My dear friends, The world is truly wacked.
