How to ride a shark in Fortnite

  1. Find a fishing rod. You’ll need a standard fishing rod. Search the docks and coastlines on the map. Do not forget to look for pontoons as well. 
  2. Find a shark and have it hooked! Sharks infest most of the coastlines. They can even attack you by jumping on land! Once you’ve spotted one follow the below steps:
    – Throw your line so that the cork lands within one or two meters of the shark.
    – Wait a few seconds. 
    – The shark will tangle his fin in the line and pull you to him. 

  3. Ride the shark and lead the shark.  You’re the one who leads the way. You fully control the shark, and you can even accelerate or jump!
