Surfer claims he rode a great white shark

It sounds like a story granddad tells you but instead of walking miles and miles to get to school it’s using the back of a great white shark as a surfboard.

But it’s the story of American Doug Niblack and he’s sticking to it.

Niblack says he was surfing off the coast of Oregon when he felt his surfboard collide with something. Stepping off he didn’t know what he was standing on until he looked down.

First thing he saw was a dorsal fin. Next thing, the body of the 10ft long great white shark he was riding on.

As the story goes the shark thrashed his tail until Niblack fell off a few seconds later.

Alas, there is no video or witnesses to help us wrap our head around the possibility this story is indeed true and not just a figment of someone’s imagination.

But why would someone make this up? Sometimes the unbelievable is the most truthful. Like the time I took a breath underwater. I know I did but my father will never believe me. [Source | Image]
