One kilometer out at sea, Paddle Out for Sharks organiser Karen Wadsworth had even more cause to celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8th when her boyfriend Stephen Borain proposed to her right at the end of the Paddle Out for Sharks ceremony held just off backline at Scottburgh main beach.

The pair from Amanzimtoti, a coastal town south of Durban in South Africa, had first met at the 2013 Paddle Out for Sharks. From love at first sight to this year’s out-at-sea proposal, it has been a romance bordered by their mutual concern about the plight of sharks and work on behalf of the apex predators that play a vital role in maintaining a healthy marine ecosystem.
