Today I surfed at tsujido in the morning and it was pretty good. I was waist high with a pretty nice sand bar. In the evening I went stand up paddling with my friend Shinjo to this island called Eboshi. It took us a good 1 hour to get there and on the way back I had this weird feeling that something was following us. I looked back but I didn`t see anything. Then all of a sudden a fin slowly pops up! It was about 7 feet long. Shinjo and I paddled for our life! We eventually made it back and it was one experience I will never forget. It was my first time seeing a shark in Japan and I hope its my last.
