\r\n

The other night Art Brewer, the canonical 61-year-old surf photographer was schooling me on predatory marine life and some of the other dangers that a surf photographer faces in the water.

\r\n

He said, \"There was this one day, a long time ago in southern Australia -- I was out at this reef that breaks about a half mile out in the ocean with [surfing legends] Wayne Lynch and Nat Young. Wayne and Nat had just taken some LSD and the first thing they said to me was, 'Don't look into the water.' \"

\r\n

Lynch and Young had their surfboards, of course, but Brewer was out there with just a pair of swim fins and a camera.

\r\n

\"It was really spooky that day,\" said Brewer. \"And within about 20 minutes of us getting in, this snapper boat pulls up just outside of us and starts chumming the water. To this day Wayne swears he saw one of the men in the grey suits\" -- great whites -- \"circling around. It was touchy stuff.\"
