Claim:   Video clip shows a surfer pulled along by a shark he hooked with a rod and reel.

Status:   Undetermined.

Example:   [Collected on the Internet, July 2008]

I received this from a co-worker. It is about a surfer that goes fishing for a shark from his board, hooks one, gets a ride — past some other surfers in the water, too — then ditches his rod/reel and surfs in. Is this video legit?

Origins:   Research in progress.
