Kiteboarder encountered whale shark

Postby vanart » Mon Oct 04, 2021 1:25 pm

I got twice lucky that day: While foiling I encountered a majestic sea creature, what appeared to be a whale shark.
The second part of my luck was that the shark was not hungry.

Well, unless the whale shark mistakes you for a gigantic piece of plankton, you should be totally safe. As far as shark encounters go, that's the one to have, IMO. Lucky you!

Cool. Also liked that you follow Norwegian law. Wish more did :thumb:

Went snorkeling with whale sharks once myself. That was surprisingly fun. Then again I get excited if I see a cat in the streets...

Not his wildest wildest dream. Dang, I wonder what that might be? Great vid. All the tech , 360 camera, kitesurfing, foil and some luck came together to make this possible.
