WCT/Fantasy Surfer, post Tahiti, pre Trestles
Trestles is such a skate park that the great get separated from the really good.

Look for the top 10 to be just that… in the top 10. You won’t see Raino Montiero or Kieran Perrow in the finals. This isn’t macking, dredging, death thunder. This is Trestles.

SURFLINE:
In response to the shark scourge that’s claimed the lives of five people since 2011 including two fatal attacks this year — one, a 36-year-old surfer on honeymoon this May, and the other, a 15-year-old swimmer, Sarah Roperth, a couple weeks ago — the French government has given local authorities the go-ahead to prohibit any and all water activity along much of Reunion Island’s coastline, including its most treasured surf spot, St. Leu, until October. Furthermore, the island’s prefect, Jean-Luc Marx, announced a plan to kill 90 sharks on top of the two dozen already slain over the past year as part of a suspiciously disguised scientific research program.

DISCUSS:
Shark attacks happen, not good, but the French governments prohibition; to deny surfers the right to surf — is BS. My gut feeling is this about tourist dollars. The French govt felt they had to do something. Their plan : show the world we have it under control 1) limit access to the ocean, 2) kill a bunch of sharks problem solved. 3) open up the ocean again.

George Burgess, shark expert had this to say on Surfline: Surfers have a mind of their own and are willing to accept risks and sometimes their choices on accepting the risks have a broader scale of impact and can affect a whole community, its reputation, tourism and things like that. So sometimes, you do have to sacrifice a little bit of personal freedom for the good of the whole.

Is it vengeful to just enact an all out slaughter on the sharks?
It was okay to hunt down the Tiger shark that took Bethany Hamilton’s arm. That happened and nobody questioned it.

Fish Farming need to be looked at, this may be the root cause ; something has changed; there is a reason for the increase ; more interaction between humans and sharks in Reunion and fish farming would be place to start the investigation.
