A SUP surfer named Chuck Patterson shot this last summer at San Onofre in San Diego. It’s your basic “stick a gopro camera in the water and enjoy footage of great white sharks circling you” deal. I would have bugged out. Oh yeah, and paddled back to shore toot sweet. But Chuck was in awe of the moment, and kept shooting. He’d actually seen a shark there the day before, and returned this day with his camera HOPING to get footage of the sharks. He tells the story of the experience on his blog.
Me I’ve only seen a shark once ever while out on the water, and that was enough. More than enough. It suffices. Peconic Puffin Contributing GoPro Nature Boy Peconic Jeff hasn’t caught anything like this. Something tells me he might like to. I don’t want to be there if and when… Nice work, Chuck!
