This surfboard is meant to take the isolation out of the sport of surfing. It gives real time social media updates and text messages. It even helpfully offers up to date information on the conditions of the very ocean the surfer is presumably sitting in. 

At the moment, it's still a prototype so only time will tell if it becomes a super useful gadget or just another way to lose your phone at the beach.

Kuli's owners, Alexandra Gomez and Krista Littleton, tell the Daily Mail that Kuli's been a surfing beach bum for almost a year now. Gomez and Littleton adopted Kuli when he was just 3-months-old and weighed a pretty pound.

Shortly after Kuli's adoption, he had to undergo surgery to remove an infected eye. Gomez and Littleton credit Kuli's clear comfortability with the water as result of his recovery process, which involved frequent bathing.

Two divers off the western coast of Australia came away unscathed after a terrifying run-in with a Great White shark. Dave Richards and Nathan Podmore were spear fishing when the shark crashed the party. It circled them a few times, cutting the two off from their boat. Armed only with their spears, Richards and Podmore could only poke at the shark to shoo it away.

A surfer off the same coast wasn't so lucky on Saturday, as he was bitten in half by Great White. Benjamin Linden, 24, was attacked by a shark estimated to be almost 16 feet long. It's the fifth shark fatality in this region of Australia in less than a year, and it's spurred lawmakers to consider removing the animal from the Protected Species list.
