Surfer Plays Chicken with Frenzied, Feeding Sharks

Surfers, this might be the only time you hear us say that some­times it’s best to ignore the call of the waves.

Two weeks ago, a dead whale washed up on the shores of War­roo­ra Sta­tion and near­ly 100 sharks — includ­ing tiger sharks and reef sharks — took advan­tage of the shore­line buffet.

In this short clip, Bill­abong surfer Rachel Camp­bell plays a dan­ger­ous game of chick­en, run­ning ankle-deep into the water amidst the feed­ing frenzy.
