The show also showcases a variety of predators, including three sharks that attacked people deliberately.

II. The Attacks

Shark Vs. Surfer shows you five tales of shark attacks. We start off in California, where a woman named Leanne was attacked while swimming by a great white shark. On the other coast, in Florida, where a significant portion of unprovoked attacks occurs, Chris is bitten on his foot. He was in shallow waters, and the culprit was a Black Tipped Shark.

Hawaii’s Marjorie shows us how an attack can cause trauma and affect a person’s life. She had not returned to the beach for many years after being bitten by a Tiger Shark and revisited the fateful site for the first time in the series.

The story of a newly-wed couple in South Africa encountering a bull shark attack also sends chills down your spine. The last attack is an accidental one, set in Western Australia. Denver was attacked by a Great White Shark drawn closer to the shore with a swarm of sharks because a whale had beached nearby.

While the stories are packed with nail-biting suspense, blood and gore, and several tense moments, Shark Vs. Surfer is a collection of tales of survival. Unlike ‘When Sharks Attack’, another staple of Sharkfest, this show doesn’t have any stories ending in death.

5. Final Thoughts

Shark Vs. Surfer is another show that reminds beachgoers and surfers about the lurking danger of sharks. While these people survived to tell their stories, there are many who don’t, and it is essential to gather all necessary information and take precautions while suffering.

For fans of Sharkfest, Shark Vs. Surfer walks right up their alley. It has drama, blood, scars, and sharks and keeps you hooked throughout. It wouldn’t be a surprise if this show became a Sharkfest Regular on National Geographic in the following years.
