Guy in Australia Decides to Surf a Dead Whale Surrounded by Sharks


You heard right. A man in perth, Australia decided to climb onto a giant dead whale that was floating just off the West Coast of Australia, only to then realise that the whale was attracting quite a few large sharks.

It is believed the man climbed on top of the whale after swimming over to it from a nearby boat.

We love this guys opportunistic attitude however, he is certainly a strong contender for the 2014 darwin award.

The risk was pretty high considering the whale was surrounded by several large sharks which were likely attracted from many miles away by such a large carcass.

But at least this guy has one hell of a story to tell at parties.
