On tuesday after work I paddled out on my LB in Jupiter (10-15 miles south of where this happened.) It was just me and some nice glassy waist high peelers, clear blue water. Not more than a minute after I sat up on my board to start picking a wave, a ~5' spinner shark jumped out of the water ~50' away from me. Now I have seen spinners jump while surfing, but usually it is a hundred yards further offshore or more. This one was at the same distance out I was, probably in 7 or 8 feet of water. I decided it was "too sharky" and paddled back into shore to call it a day. I've paddled in once before after seeing a shark a couple years ago, that one was riding in a wave.
