Week in Review

Random happenings in surf for the Week of October 17

Ah, another week completed, another slew of ridiculousness wrangled…

More Shark Attacks in Oregon!
On Thursday, another man claimed to have been attacked by a 10-to 15-foot Great White off the Oregon coast. This man, however, did not claim to have surfed the back of it. Click here to see photos of the shark-bitten board.
