The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:

Darren John HUNNIFORD (Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales), Chris MILNES (Grantham, Lincolnshire, England), Adam Nicholas SANDERSON (Ashby de-la Zouch, Leicestershire, England), Emma Louise BARKER (Beckenham, Kent, England) and Helen Clare JOHNSTON (Grassendale, Liverpool, England).

On our trip to Mossel Bay in December 2003, Darren had ordered a custom made board from Billeon...

One month later, a couple of days before returning to Wales (UK), he finally gets his brand new personal surfboard... and what a beauty!

The board arrived very well packed and ready to fly home with him... but curiousity took its toll on Darren (and probably on anyone else out there in the same situation), and the package had to be opened...

Darren promised to send us some surfing pictures from Wales... hopefully he will... so look out for some surfing pictures soon!

Friday the 16th of January 2004... Darren's last day with us... We were only three hours at sea, but we had Sharks from the moment we arrived... counting seven when we left! Great and Exciting!

We left early to go watch The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King! The movie was releasing a month ago... but it only started showing today in Hermanus! Amazing!!!
