Brothers and Sisters of SOL, I **** my pants. I was on the back of a massive Whale Shark that just happened to surface underneath the Kayak in the Gulf Stream off Boyton Beach. I thought at first it was a big hammerhead or big bull shark that attacked the Hobie rudder or drive.  Nope a ****ing massive whale shark. I ended up surfing on its back for a few seconds and it flipped out with the tail whacking around and hit the rods in the back. 

The kid I was with tried to get the go pro going to catch it all on film but was in shock just like I was. My back is sore from the impact just ate a couple of Tylenol and heading back to the hotel to rest.  


I googled  whale shark and found this article from the other day.  Chances could be a school of them around or more possible the same one.  It was the same depth about 125-150 feet.

Glad that you are ok.  Other than the pucker factor- sounds like it was worth it for a life long memory.

I don't know if you could possibly improve upon that so this might be your-

"jumped the shark" moment
