by Dr. Jeffrey Lewis, Silver-coin-investor:
The top two questions people ask me when they learn that I’m a northern California surfer, are
1) whether I’m afraid of sharks or, 2) isn’t the water cold? The answer is yes to both.
Of course I’m afraid of natural born killers the size of small cars lurking beneath the murky surface in the ocean while I am floating on a thin layer of fiberglass wearing what might as well be a wounded seal suit three quarters of a mile from the shore. Who wouldn’t be?
So, why do it? Because the odds are very low that I will be ‘tasted’. Plus I do it for sport, not for livelihood. Although, based on most people’s fear, you would think that the risk was much higher.
