The Lofoten Masters surf event in northern Norway made bigger headlines than usual this weekend, with two Killer Whales filmed swimming through the lineup during a heat.
A POD of killer whales have been filmed for the first time hunting and killing a TIGER SHARK. The footage, which is believed to be a world-first, was captured off the coast of Costa Rica by underwater photographer Caroline Power and British marine biologist Nicholas Bach. It shows three killer whales working as a team to force the panicked shark to the surface, wearing it down and taking opportunistic bites at its fins.
On Saturday 6th September Ulus was small and crowded – a lull between swells. Roxy surfer Hayanna Iguchi Murakawa was enjoying a surf with her friends when an hour and half into the session she heard people screaming: “I was sitting in the line-up when I heard people cheering and screaming. I looked to the side and saw a huge black fin rise up from the water.”
This group of fisherman are out in Ketchikan, Alaska, filming for an adventure fishing show, when a sea lion decides to take refuge under their boat. An odd situation to begin with – especially when you take into account how lackadaisical the people on board seem about having a killer whale circling them. Then this happens. And we feel really bad for the poor sea lion. But it’s kind of impossible not to be amazed.
