California surfer films great white sharks circling his board

By: Pete Thomas,

The last thing most surfers would want to see is a great white shark circling their board. But when two of the notorious apex predators began swimming around Chuck Patterson earlier this week off San Onofre in northern San Diego County, he saw opportunity.

Patterson, 41, who lives in nearby Dana Point, paddled out at the same spot the next day with a high-definition camera mounted on a 10-foot pole, and used the apparatus to probe the murky green water around his board. The result is the accompanying video, which shows what presumably are the same two sharks: an estimated nine-footer and a seven-footer, milling beneath him as he paddled.

2469 that's not a surfboard. SUP boarders need to get the fuck over themselves an their boring hobby immediately, and STOP calling themselves fucking surfers..

71234 The sharks are obviously an uncomfortable situation and yet many of the comments are nothing more than a demonstration of the ability to use four letter words against the person that posted the video. I feel sad for the upbringing of many people today..

Anon71243: Maybe you mean they haven't been indoctrinated to behave according to the same guidelines as you? Many many wellbehaved people are dumb as bricks, and many foulmouthed people rather intelligent, just by way of a general rule. Most wellbehaved people would behave like the worst scumbags if their upbringing or culture had been different. A sad fact but true nonetheless.

i hae no idea what is the point of this video. Nothing to do with my life, or yours. Vicarious existence and all that? It doesn't even matter if what the guy is brave or brilliant (i didn't watch it)...this is same as television entertainment. i wonder if the reason for posting it here is the same, too.

7626 Holy crap! I can't believe this guy seriously got this close to a flippin shark. That is terrifying. I live in Florida and Im always sketched out at the beach when I go out too deep and can't touch the bottom or see around me. This is why. The ocean sucks. Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying.

6711 Wow, not sure if I would chalk that up as "brave" or "crazy".

98195 I cant believe this guy went BACK the next day to make this film.....Oh I'm so lucky to get away with my life after two almost 10 ft sharks were circling my surfboard. Well, no other options make sense except going right back to the same damn deserted place to make shark friends.

You sir have much much much bigger balls than I. The grade of steel your balls are made out of would be acceptable on a Boeing aircraft. I could string an electric guitar with the steel hairs coming off of your steel balls. There is no amount of money in the world that would make me do what this guy did for fun. Un. Fucking. Real
