"I had a dream..."
And just imagine, for one second, that your wife or significant other had supernatural abilities. Could see into the future, as clear as anything, dreaming of a “dark, murky, rainy day. You sitting on your board. Your face then… a tug.”
Would you wink, mutter, “Onya” then paddle out at a break in New South Wales, Australia named “Sharkys” on a dark, murky and rainy day?
Men aren’t built as devil-may-care as Wil Schroeter anymore and let’s learn of his harrowing encounter then be inspired by his bravery then be jealous of his wife, who we would certainly pack up immediately and take to Las Vegas for a wild week-long bender of winnings not seen since Back to the Future II.
‘Just paddling – I’m going, when’s this thing going to bite me again?’ he said.
The bite went through to the bone of his foot and caused ligament damage.
Mr Schroeter’s wife Michelle said she had a dream he would be bitten by a shark two days earlier.
‘I remember it was clear as anything. Dark, murky, rainy day. I remember Wil sitting on his board. I didn’t see the shark, either. I just saw his face with the tug,’ she said.
The surf break is known as ‘Sharky’s’ and is a regular spot where of Mr Schroeter’s.
NSW Police said in a statement on Friday that no shark has been sighted in the area despite lifeguards patrolling on jet skis during the day.
Two hammerhead sharks were, however, seen in the area two weeks ago.
Hold one just one moment. We’ve been fixated on Great Whites, Tigers, Bulls and Flying Needlefish but Hammerheads?
Oh literal boy.
No more surfing anywhere until this new threat can be assessed.
Also, Ms. Schroeter, if you are available for a Vegas run it will be all-expense paid.
More as the story develops.
But quickly, Niners or Chiefs?
