“at the center of Red Triangle”
Bolinas Beach lies at the center of the harrowing Red Triangle, so called because of the geometric form its boundaries make. Here, 38 percent of recorded great white attacks have reportedly occurred. While there have been no fatal incidents in Marin County (where Bolinas Beach is located), there have been 11 non-fatal attacks since 1926. That’s 11 too many for us to even think about taking a dip. A friendly note to all surfers and swimmers: if you see large numbers of seals, otters, and sea lions flapping around (as is the case in the waters of the Red Triangle), chances are there are some hungry pursuers not far away. The point is: sharks aren’t known for their species delineation abilities, so help them out and get out of the water if you find yourself shredding waves among known food sources. You’ll be doing yourself a huge favor.
