VIDEO: Surfing In Skeleton Bay, Namibia, One Of The World’s Sharkiest Spots
Surfing In Skeleton Bay, Namibia
The waves seem to roll down the coast for miles along Africa’s desolate coast at Skeleton Bay, Namibia. The water is cold and great white shark-infested, “but those barrels are oh, so inviting; inviting enough to forget the sharks, take the beatings, fight the current and try to pump that little rubber body of yours out the other side,” according to Stab Magazine. Skeleton Bay has been identified as one of world’s 10 sharkiest spots that you can’t help but surf. Stab describes the waves like this: “Reeling pale green lefthand zoomers that cull all nonsense and set the brain to froth overload … GoPro fantasy shacks, going and going like the Energizer Bunny.” There have been no recorded shark attacks there yet, “but ask anyone who’s surfed there and they’ll tell you: The vibe is there.”
