Dolphin. Clip is from OB in SF. Dolphins drop in all the time out there. When the surf is smaller and all the kooks come out the "shark" sighting reports increase dramatically.

Cheers,
Brad

Looks like a shark fin to me. A dolphin fin would have some curve on the back side, no?
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

You know I always strive to "de-sensationalize" GWS sightings or interactions but it doesn't really look like a dolphin fin to me either.

There's no mistaking that fin.... GW shark.... They are always around though. Just one of the hazards we face playing on the ocean.  :smt006

Agreed, no doubt that we are visiting their neighborhood.

from the youtube page.


Occurred on December 12, 2017 / San Francisco, California, USA

"I was out surfing. When I was paddling towards a wave, I turned on my GoPro. Such was my concentration in getting that set that the first second I saw the fin, I sort of tried to race it so I could get the second wave of the set.  Then I stopped and thought about what just happened."

Go and look through YakYakYak's first link - there's a lot of variability in fin shape, size, etc. I live at OB and surf it regularly. Dolphins are out all the time and they love to surf the waves just as we do, which is what that dolphin was doing. I'm not dismissing the fact that we're in the landlord's realm, but that video is not an unfamiliar sight at that local.

Cheers,
Brad

Maybe cause it's slo-mo, but I still think it's a litle questionable.  personally.  In faster motion, it might more resemble that surface breaking arch the dolphins do.
