Re: Errrr Sharks?

I'd agree that the guy in the Vid didn't really do what I would in that situation. Pretty much the advice that you hear about hitting sharks with your paddle is highlighted in that video as a pretty stupid thing to do. why provoke the seas most powerful set of teeth...

Re: Action camaras

GoPro - I've had several others over the years but the only ones I use these days are the GoPro's, why? Simply because they just work every time without issue where as the cheaper imatations always seem to come up with some issue. I've got a Hero 2, 3, and 4, next I'm keen to try a Session :y: Hey ...
