Youíve got hate mail. Golden Gate Expeditions (greatwhiteadventures.com) received a barrage of angry mail after it surfaced the company uses surfboards as decoys to attract great white sharks in the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. Surfers believe the operation is conditioning the wide-ranging sharks to attack boards on sight. Lawrence Groth, president of Golden Gate Expeditions, defends the practice saying the decoys donít condition the sharks as readily as chumming does. In fact, the sharks receive no greater reward than a mouthful of splintered fiberglass.
