Well first I'd probably crap myself then paddle away as fast as I could.

hmmm, pass out from fear???

thats probably my greatest fear, getting eaten by something in the ocean...i live on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and am terrified of water past my waist...pools and lakes I can handle, sea water freaks me out...*shudder*

but they also say out here that if you go up in a helicopter and fly over the beaches you see all the people out in the water and they are all surrounded by sharks and they never know it!!

I'd try to remain calm, which probly would last about a quarter of a second and then panic and paddle like no white man has paddled before.

Imagine my arms twirling like a propeller at warp speed. And if that wouldn't get me to shore it damn sure would wack that shark pretty good. He'd know I mean business.

Yu never really know what you would do in that situation but my first thought would be to paddle backward towards it hoping somehow he would not get up the momentum to swallow me whole or be so overcome with curiosity he would give me a fly by and let me escape to shallow water.

Once he made aggressive contact I would be making my best Mark Maguire/ Sammy Sosa impression and swingin for the fence!

I would like to think I would have the presence of mind to spin sideways and as the shark came up to bite I would shove my oar down his throat... Then I would try to punch it in the nose and gouge out it's eyes...

More likely I would paddle like I was an Ethiopian who was late for a free buffet... Then I'd get eaten...
