AQWA – Post Traumatic Shark Syndrome!
Guest Speaker Gyula is a cage free abalone diver & Post Grad student in Psychotherapy.
Hear firsthand of encounters with great whites, discover insights into shark behavior learned from years of diving and gain invaluable survival advice from the enigmatic Gyula – one of WA’s last abalone divers to operate without a shark cage. Plus just by joining us on the night, you’ll go in the running to win a Dive or Snorkel with Sharks at AQWA!
As spoken by Gyula Plaganyi:
“’I’d rather swim with a shark than try and catch a big spider, it’s what you are familiar with,”
“Eye contact is important… If you see a shark, try and face it and show as much of your body as you can. Make a bigger presence,”
“Generally sharks need to build up their courage, they’re swimming around for a while underneath you,”
