Picture this: you're a great white shark prowling through the ocean. You've got like five rows of teeth, top and bottom. You're a living, swimming death machine. You're the king of these waters. You're swimming along one day, feeling like just about the baddest thing on the planet, when suddenly, something flashes by below you. You didn't quite catch what it was, just a black shadow. Alas, it was your doom. Teeth tear into you and all thoughts of being the apex predator vanish from your tiny fish brain. Nothing is safe. The entire ocean is just potential prey for the killer whale. Just as mountains are prey for the Lib Tech T.Rice Orca Snowboard. Grab yours: it's feeding time.
