Shark Attacks at Marina Beach

Stories of shark attacks from my home town, Marina California.

Marina Beach.

Back in high school, Marina Beach was a great make out spot but nobody ever went in the water.  The ocean goes from sea level to a depth of 5000 feet in about a quarter of a mile.  This creates a killer rip tide.  The Monterey Canyon descends to a depth of 11,000 and was classified for national security because it was a suspected launch site for Soviet ballistic missile submarines against San Francisco.    In the 70’s people kept drowning there on a regular basis.  When I went back home in 1998 I was stunned to see people SURFING at Marina State Beach.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get worse…..
