What a liar,I think she was smoking pot out doing some other illicit drug. Landed on the shark standing up??? C'mon man, that is ridiculous, I'm thankful you are alive,...but get out of here, you are telling a lie to gain fame. There were multiple witnesses and no one saw you standing up after the shark hit your kayak...people claim you were at one end, the shark at another. One witness talked you after the attack, while you were still anchored and then you mentioned nothing about "surfing the shark"...get your story right, it's embarrassing to lie!!!!
