California Man Captures Close Encounter With Shark

Posted: Updated:

A California paddle surfer captures his nerve-wrecking encounter with a great white shark with the help of his camera.

The video shows the shark swimming around his surf board. There is even a moment on the video where the shark gets a little too close and almost touches his board.

The man's name is Mike Durand And he shot the video while he paddle-surfed off Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles County on Wednesday. He tried to stay away from the great white, even paddling away once he noticed it coming, but it kept encircling him from below.

Mike was lucky. The shark eventually swam away.
