- Apr 1, 2008Hi
I Kitesurf at Waddell Creek (California). Now the Landlord is the Great
White who is feeding mostly on Elephant Seal pups at Ano Nuevo north
about a mile. But I am sure they do cruise by south. I havent seen one.
But they have been sighted along the coast. No one as far as I know has
had issues. I do however think about it sometimes while kiting or
surfing and when I go to China I NEVER eat sharks-fin-soup...bad karma.
