If there was anything running through the mind of Harrison Williams at the time he jumped on a whale surrounded by feeding great white sharks it was probably this: ________.

The 26-year-old Perth, Australia native apparently thought “it would be pretty funny to surf the whale,” but the whale was dead. The funny thing is, he knew the sharks were feeding when he jumped in.

Luckily for him, he was quickly saved by a rescue boat. But would he do it again?

“Definitely not (wouldn’t do it again)…I’ve done it, I don’t need to do it again. Definitely it was a stupid act, didn’t mean to disrespect anyone, mum thinks I’m an idiot, dad’s not too proud either,” he said.
