Sharky - Is the bahamas as sharky as everyone says it is?

By ern more , 11-02-2006

been there - stayed in the area for three weeks and checked this place everyday that holiday and surfer's was breaking and never surfed hatchet. Spearfished one of the points near there and saw teeth, nothing too large, but I don't spear there anymore.

Shark Shmarks - This wave looks sick. I am heading straight to this spot when I get to Elewthra in March. I have no clue how to get there or if it will be worth it, but with sharks, a hole and some overhead lefts I'm on it.
