Remember my strong advice, just remember to always think twice...
Deadly attacks are rare, but watch out for fins on these shorelines.
While shark attacks are rare, they’ve been on the rise, with 79 attacks in 2010—the most dangerous year for shark attacks in a decade. Here is a list of some notable locations for shark attacks in 2010 and 2011. Although no one beach is more likely to be prone to shark attacks than another, these are mostly part of larger areas known to be where sharks and humans come into contact with each other.
Topsail Island, North Carolina: North Carolina has had a moderate amount of shark attacks in the past decade, including five last year, up from one the year before. One of those victims was Carley Schlentz, a 13-year-old girl from Greensboro, N.C., who was attacked near Topsail Island. She was bitten twice before she made it out of the water, and required 60 stitches to close the wounds.
If you are like me and you love the water, I doubt this will actually stop you from getting back in the beach and enjoying the pleasures of swimming in the ocean, but I hope you will be a bit more careful and pay more attention to where you swim and surf....some beaches are just not meant for swimmers:))
Well, be careful, man. Be careful. Wear shoes in the house. Safety. Safety first, then teamwork..
until next time...
