I also remember an article someone posted years ago where kayak bottoms were being painted with zebra patterns.  Wetsuit is a good idea... in theory.  Hope we never find out.

I'm only basing my opinion on one incident, but there was one quite infamous attack on a yellow Ocean Kayak with big ole' stripes painted on it. All the OGs know this.

I gotta think stripes do nothing here in Norcal.

Stripes don't work.

I had a shark shield long time ago and used it once, then stopped using it after getting shocked. That artwork looks like too much work. I think I'll just pray
