Two men have filmed themselves paddle-boarding alongside great white sharks off the California coast. Hemerick and Joseph Trucksess of San Clemente can be seen moving slowly on stand-up paddle boards next to juvenile great whites measuring 4 to 7 feet in length. Hemerick uses his GoPro camera to film the sharks above and below water, sometimes getting within inches of the creatures.
“While shark cage diving, our cage was attacked by a Great White shark. The round buoy attached to the side of the cage was bent in half. Some of the lining of the outside blue barrier bar was bitten through as well. It was quite the up close and personal experience. This was shot with a GoPro Hero 4 wide angle. The shark was even closer than he appears. I apologize for the shakiness.” – Hillary Rae.
A diver with a taste for danger jumped straight into shark-infested waters…because he wanted to get a better filming angle. Forest Galante, 26, was free dive spear fishing off the California coast when he spotted hammerhead shark circling his boat. Instead of staying safely on board, the insane adventurer decided to dive straight in with his GoPro camera to get a better view.
Six reported shark attacks have occurred on the North Carolina coast so far this month. The most serious injuries were suffered by a 12-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy, each bitten an hour apart off the coast of Oak Island. Each had an arm amputated. The men took a few pictures with this shark at Canova Beach, then released it into the water.
The shark had been circling the surfer for a couple of terrifying minutes before he decided to record it with his gopro camera. As you can see in the footage the surfer tries to make his way around the shark back to more shallow water before it disappears. The best thing he did was to remain calm while he watched the sharks movements in case it attacked him. There’s nothing quiet like a large killing machine with a mouthful of daggers swimming around underneath you. You can sense the fear in his breathing.
Great white sharks are among the biggest creatures that populate our planet’s oceans in this day and age, and they have an appetite to match. Now, we all know that great whites love and adore hunting and feeding on seals and sea lions. Even so, they aren’t shy about turning into scavengers when opportunity presents itself. The already-dead meals that these sharks almost never refuse are whale carcasses. Recently, one such corpse popped up in the waters off the coast of New York, US. Check it out!
