John Florence and Friends Chased Out of Water by Sharks in Western Australia

The everyday surfer rarely has an encounter with a shark, unless you live in a sharky place like Western Australia. But even the two-time world champion John Florence reacts the way most of us would if we think we see a shark: We get out of the ocean.

Which is just what Florence and friends did during a session in Western Australia. The crew saw something splash and decided to head in, better safe than sorry. They launched a drone to investigate and found out they weren’t wrong.

Not only did they confirm one shark (likely a great white) lurking around the break, but a second one as well. Seems like they made the right call by coming in.
