Scary shark video

Chuck Patterson:

the day before I shot this video, i was SUP surfing with a couple friends and 2 sharks circled us for about 15 minutes. the next day, i decided to go back out at around the same time and take my GO PRO HD camera mounted on a 10 ft pole and do some exploring.

Sure enough within 5 minutes a 9 ft shark came out of no where and circled twice and slapped his tail on my board before disappearing. then a minute later a 7 ft young juvenile Great White swam circles around me for 12 minutes.
The sound is the key to making this unsettling. Via these sites.

*Buy the GoPro HD at Amazon.


  1. It's like I'm having a nightmare while I'm awake.

  2. I'm trying (and failing) to comprehend the leap between "sharks circled for 15 minutes" and "decided to go back out."


  3. re: Jen's comment - LOVE IT! I was wondering the same thing!!
