I'm sorry guys I didn't mean to come off as selling pinnacle, I was just excited that I made my first video of my new ski and wanted to share it with fellow paddle ski fishermen, but if this has offended any one I will remove it,if I knew how to....

Glad you are ok. Will you be going out again or are you over kayak fishing now ? I would probably be so traumatized that I never want to see a kayak again.

I can't imagine what went through you mind. I'm pooping my pants just imagining it.

Do you have a shark repellent thing on your kayak ?

Many of us would go back again as we are fishing addicted , just like guys with motorbikes - no crash will take him out of bike seat . Also chances that this happen again is same as winning lotto.

 But another thing .... I cant imagine passing by my wife to get in a kayak again. I can just imagine what she would say if I just mention going back ..... She will probably  have a fit and mention kids and school fees and so on and on ....

Yikes!!...that must have been scary stuff. I once met a guy here in Cape Town that used to build kayaks. He told me about an experience he and 3 mates had off Simons Town where they were being circled by a huge white and so they decided to all pull there yaks together to make them look bigger and this white came up from under them and tried to split them apart again. A week later the one guy was out when he's yak was bitten or attacked. The guy told me he thought it must have been the same shark that attacked him....scary stuff!!
