Australian Surfer Bro Jumps Into Shark Infested Waters To Surf On A Dead Whale
(CNN) — An Australian man who “surfed” a floating whale carcass surrounded by sharks has admitted that he was an “idiot” to attempt the foolhardy feat.
Harrison Williams, 26, was on a boating excursion with friends off the coast of Western Australia over the weekend when they came across the dead whale.
“Out on the boat with the boys and one of my mates thought it’d be pretty funny if I surfed the whale, so I just did it,” Williams told CNN affiliate Seven Network.
He launched himself into the water and clambered onto the rotting carcass.
But his friends’ mirth quickly turned to horror when they noticed all the sharks swimming around the whale, feasting on its flesh.
“Hazza! There’s sharks there! Come back!” screams one of his friends in a video of the bizarre scene.
‘Mum thinks I’m an idiot’
Several tiger sharks and at least one great white shark were reported to have been feeding on the carcass.
Williams said he’d seen the sharks, including the great white, before he jumped in. But that didn’t put him off taking the leap.
“He was too busy chomping on the whale so wasn’t too bad,” he told Seven Network.
Hahaha Harrison, Whale Rider? No. This native girl/hero is a whale rider:
You, sir, are a douche surfer..
Great White Shark infested waters, cool awesome whatever… I’m whale surfing today! What an IDIOT.
Ohhhhh Harrison, you should have gotten the Darwin Award for this one.. we should be writing your eulogy right now.. “Stupid haired australian, son of two
loving disappointed, upset parents. Whale rider extraordinaire fucking shark bait.. dumb idiot.”
I don’t wish death upon anybody… but I mean we were like thissssssss clooosee to seeing this
Magnificent, astounding, what power, what raw power. That’s 100 times more exciting than watching dumb Harrison climb on and off of a dead whale.
PS – Tell me this frizzy haired douche surfer isn’t Blake Oakfield from the Mucca Mad Boys
