no problem:

Horizons West surf shop owner/photog Randy Wright snapped this sequence of a white shark breaching about 300 yards off Sunset Blvd in LA on Saturday, October 3rd. "I'd heard about the one that breached on Friday, so I got up and paddled out at dawn on Saturday," Wright explained. "You don't see a fin cruising or anything -- all of a sudden you hear a 'WHOOOOSH', and there's this thing, falling back to the water. I just caught it out of the corner of my eye, and fortunately, they jump high enough -- 5-8 feet -- so you can snap a picture on the way back down."

pictures of a great white jumping approximately 50-100 meters away from his kayak.

cheers mate, sounds awsome, I'll be checking that out as soon as my BB comes on again.

I have seen them on tv breaching the surface chasing seals in south africa, but why are these ones breaching?
