Great White Surfing

What would your first thoughts be when a great white shark try's to have a little nibble out of you and your board?

Would you shout for help?
Punch it the nose?
Swim to shore?

Well a man from Oregon USA 
was surfing when a great white shark attacked him.
His first thought was to swim to shore as he was swimming to shore the shark swam under him,
at the same time the man stood and tamed this best for a few 
seconds as he rid the shark closer to shore.

River/Polo Bugging

This is a quick intro to New Zealand made bugging sport

With the Riverbug, Wildwater Designs set out to design a river tube that is capable of running harder river rapids. The result is a whole generation of general purpose high-tech tubes that are both sleek and sturdy.
Comparing an inner tube to a Riverbug is like comparing a Model T Ford to a Lamborghini

River Bugging

The Standard riverbug is an all-purpose bug, and is stable and easy to use. It is the ideal bug for beginners and intermediates to use on a river, whether it is a float trip, or involves rapids. Experienced bug paddlers can run Grade 3 river rapids in standard Riverbugs.

Bug Polo

Bug Polo is a game played during winter at an indoor swimming pool. Players sit in the River Bug and propel themselves with the fins on their feet. The game itself is a cross between netball and water polo.
