That Which Lurks below (Shark below surfer caught on video)

While SUP surfing (stand up paddle surfing) with a couple friends, Chuck Paterson saw 2 sharks circling them for about 15 minutes. The next day, Chuck decided to go back out at around the same time and take my his ("GO PRO HD HERO") 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 him twice and slapped his tail on his board before disappearing. About a minute later a 7 ft young juvenile Great White swam circles around him for 12 minutes. Chuck said it was an unreal experience that he will cherish forever.

This is pretty cool actually. I am testing a new site with the idea I may stop dealing with my hometown news paper.

Video Ping!

This guy really took a chance by filming this shark, but if he didn't i would never be able to share it with you. He filmed the shark below him with a camera that he strapped to a pole he uses in paddle surfing...............

That’s great, OV. Nice web site, and no more complaints from your stalkers about your being a blog pimp.

Good thing the sharks weren’t hungry.

You really like it?

I still haven’t decided whether I’ll cancel with the ER, but it is looking like I will at least limit my posts with them if I don’t cancel my contract with them altogether.

Big decision, because I have invested a lot of time and energy into them, but I really am not all that satisfied with them.

“Double Pffttt. I was eaten twice by a Great White.”
You got eaten twice? That means you got pooped out at least
once. Oh well, I guess Sharks get indigestion too.

If I could only have had it so easy,...they used to make us swim from Hawaii Kai to Molokai every morning after being eaten by sharks, and then we were made to wake up 45 minutes before we went to bed, had a breafast of cold nails and dust, and had to tow an ocean liner behind us as we broke the surf zone and ran a marathon in soft sand on the beach....and that was on holiday....

No problem. They typically only eat people if it’s a mistake.

It is off Orange County, Ca. This was on Surfer Magazine’s web page several months ago. The filmer is a semi-known big wave surfer and SUP (stand up paddle) surfer.

Some people like to get a rush, seeing their possible death only moments away.Its a modern phenomenon. Sharks dp pt bother humans usually, they are hunting for seals, or other mamalia sea life.But it all denpeds on just how hungry they are, and once they taste himan flesh, it is as good as any other, as the stories of WWII sailors adrift in rafts in the Pacific will tell you. A human to a shark is nothng special, just a piece of red meat. I consider this episode foolhardy.But people have the freedom thankfully, to do whatever tickles their springs.

So now you're starting a one-upmanship contest about who has been eaten more times by great white sharks? Cool.

Cvengr has taken up your challenge in Post 20. It's your move.   ;-)

Yes, I really like it.

I’ve had the feeling that you’ve been unhappy for a while now, so this change is good.

Watched a show called Sons of Guns and they had a Marine on the show who was a Medal Of Honor recipient..... looked the man up on the net and found a interview done on CSPAN.

Worth the time folks.....never forget.

I don’t think that MOH winner had so much fun since about 1946! He was just grinning when they strapped that flamer on him.
