I am moving all the posts about Pat to this new thread (from the thread about the kiter at kanaha). It seems proper to put in a new thread.

He was an avid windsurfer that stayed with me and we sailed uppers every chance we got. Only reason he was fishing was that there has been no wind here for a week.

We are numb and processing a lot of emotions today after the loss of one of our own from the Seattle area in a fatal shark attack while fishing in his kayak. We sailed with Pat at Uppers regularly during his winter visits to Maui. This is way to close to home for many of us who knew Pat. RIP my friend.

Kewakapu beach and La Perouse are very close to one another. I wonder if it is the same shark only days apart, and whether he has a taste for humans after these attacks. I also wonder about the food chain. Is there something wrong in the water. Not enough fish to eat? It may be time to take out one of the big near shore Mako's.

RIP to Pat. This is a hard blow to any family and community.

What are the details of this latest attack? Did the shark attack him while he was in his kayak? That makes it a lot scarier than an attack on a surfer with his legs dangling over the edge looking like a seal.

PostPosted: 03 Dec 2013 20:22 He was dangling one leg over the edge of the yak while fishing with lures.
It took his foot. He wasn't alone and got help right away but bled out.
Sad event.

reply by whitesalmonmike:
He did not get help right away. The other kayak was about 500 yards away and thought he had caught another bait fish. He had passed out by the time the other kayak got to him, it was to late. A tourniquet was applied. And it took maybe 20 minutes to paddle to the anchored snorkel boat.

Pat was my wing-man and I will deeply miss him. We were out in uppers every sailable day. We had given up snorkeling and swimming on the south side many years ago do to the threat of sharks. He had a wife and 3 brothers and no children.

Mike

copy and pasted from the LA Times since links to articles don't work after about a week usually:

Hawaii officials have shut down an area of water just off the southern coast of Maui after a kayaker was killed in an apparent shark attack there Monday.

It was the second such death in Maui this year, continuing a worrisome trend for Hawaii after a decade of relative quiet that has been disturbed by an increase in shark attacks over the last two years.

On Monday, Patrick A. Briney, 57, of Stevenson, Wash., was fishing and kayaking with a friend somewhere between Maui and the tiny island of Molokini -- which is about 2 1/2 miles off Maui's south shore -- when his friend heard him cry out, according to the Maui County Police Department.

The friend paddled to Briney and found him bleeding profusely from an apparent shark bite on his right leg, police said.

Unable to stop the bleeding, the pair sought help from a chartered snorkeling boat, which took Briney to a boat ramp ashore, police said. But Briney died before he could be taken to a hospital.
