As Texas surfers we are always aware of the man in the grey suit (you can view all our coverage on Texas shark attacks here), and believe that they are beautiful and majestic animals. With that being said, we were stoked to come across the new documentary “Surfing and Sharks“. Here is the overview of their documentary from their website, and we will be stoked to be catching this film soon!
In South Africa between Durban and JBay lies approx 1000km of untamed topographical and oceanic paradise, in the middle is the Wild Coast. For local surfers Lungani Memani, Andrew Lange and Avuyile Ndamase, it’s their home . Every year in June the ocean swells to it’s peak, hosting the countries largest surf conditions and also becomes host to the sardine run bringing together a huge marine bio-diversity including many species of sharks.
This documentary goes up close with Pro Surfers Lungani, Andrew and Avuyile, their family’s traditions and tribulations along side a hand selected group of the best shark experts from the region to uncover the real secrets and stories that surround the shark stigma that exists in South Africa.
