Video: California Surfing News – Great White Dominates Lineup

Share The Beach

In California Surfing News: Mavericks surfers got a major dose of adrenaline on March 24, 2019, but for once it had nothing to do with surfing huge waves.

Instead, it came from a close encounter with a humongous great white shark, estimated to be 18 to 20 feet long, that cruised within inches of one jet ski and forced the evacuation of the entire surf break.

Great White Shark

“This was by far the biggest and scariest creature I’ve ever seen in the ocean.”

Stanley told ABC7 News that he was sitting on his jet ski with the engine turned off around 1:30PM by and area known as Mushroom Rock when he first saw the huge shark.

“It looked like a whale,” explained Stanley as he watched it rise out of the green depths of the ocean.

Stanley said the shark swam just inches under his jet ski, close enough for him to see the scratch marks on its skin and its dark gray eye.

“I could have reached out and touched it,” Stanley recalled.

He estimated the shark to be about 16 to 20 feet long since it was much longer than his jet ski and rescue board.

Realizing that the surfer had no idea the shark was out there, Stanley turned on his jet ski and revved it loudly several times in an attempt to draw the shark’s attention away.

It worked and Stanley was able to scoop up the surfer on his jet ski but the shark then started heading for the waiting lineup of surfers at Mavericks.

Stanley raced out to those surfers and alerted them about the huge shark, pulling as many as he could onto his rescue board and towing the rest in on their surfboards.

“I had like 8 people in,” recalled Stanley “I basically evacuated Mavericks!”

Dolphins Are Intelligent: Dolphins process information from their environment in a similar way to people, and some say that they can solve problems like humans.

Here are examples of dolphin intelligence:

      • Their forms of communication are complex, evolving and diverse.
      • Dolphins are creative and playful animals. Their behavior is not mechanical or rigid; they seem to enjoy playing and look for the companionship of other individuals.
      • Their empathy suggests that dolphins experience emotions such as sadness or joy. When dolphins are in trouble, they display a degree of cohesiveness rarely seen in other animal groups. If one becomes sick and heads toward shallow water, the entire group will sometimes follow, which can lead to mass strandings.
      • Dolphins can transmit learning to other generations of dolphins.

    • There have been cases where they use tools. For example, sponges to protect your snout from rough surfaces.
    • The members of a pod collaborate with each other and sometimes with other species of animals.
    • Some scientists argue that the social intelligence of these cetaceans competes with that of the great apes because they can show empathy towards the companions and help them when they are injured or immobilized.
    • Dolphins possess self-awareness – Proof of this is that when they look in a mirror, they can recognize themselves and know that they are the ones in the mirror; This is a sign of the development of abstract thinking.

  • According to science, their ability to learn is comparable to that of a 3-year-old toddler.
  • Dolphins respond positively to television by showing interest and curious attention to the moving images displayed on the device.
  • Dolphins have been seen playing with inanimate objects that they find in their surroundings.
  • Dolphins play with bubbles of water as they swim and then take the time to observe their creations.
  • Dolphins can solve complex problems and can imitate the actions of human beings. A dolphin named Tanner was blindfolded and told to imitate the actions of a trainer who was in the water. As the dolphin could not watch, emitted sounds and interpreted the sound waves to make replicas of the movements of the instructor.
