Sharks?? Or no??

Are their shark watches/siting or shark attacks on the coast on the beach at Surfside? Please respond someone.

Since it is an ocean there can be and are sometimes sharks. In general the beaches in the vicinity of Myrtle Beach do not have much of a problem with sharks. In the 40 plus years I have been going there I recall only twice the lifeguards having everyone get out due to a shark sighting but it doews happen.

I've only stayed in Surfside once, and none of our group saw anything there, but we saw a 5 to 6-foot shark in the Shore Drive area of Myrtle Beach about 4 years ago. It was right in the shallow water up near the shore. It was exciting and unsettling! We're always real cautious when any of us are in the water!
