OCEANIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Polynesia and the South Seas

TUMUITEARETOKA

Oceanic Shark God

Frustrated sharknado deity

He attempted to catch and devour NGARU, but NGARU had just invented the surfboard and thus made a quick getaway. Which must have been a little embarrassing for TUMUITEARETOKA.

This could be the mythological beginnings of the phrase ‘Jump The Shark’.
