Paddleboarder's Video of Great White Swimming Under his Board in California

Great white swims under paddleboarder.
What happens when you go looking for a great white on your SUP board?  Well sometimes, you might find just find one.

Yesterday Mike Durand had heard that there were two sharks spotted off Manhattan Beach in south Los Angeles County, CA so he decided to go have a look for himself.

Using a GoPro mounted on his helmet, he captured these shots of a juvenile great white fairly close to shore. Although he went out there with the intent of finding the shark, when the shark decided to pass under his board (at the 45 second mark), he states that it 'scared the sh&t out of him."

Video posted on Youtube by Mike Durand and is 1:35 in length.
