Half Moon Bay, CA – Aug 12, 2010 – Yesterday, legendary sportsman Chuck Patterson posted a video to Vimeo that showed the world a new perspective on the interactions between surfers & Great White Sharks – from Chuck’s the Vimeo page:

“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 HERO camera mounted (with the GoPro handlebar mount) 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. It was an unreal experience that I will cherish forever.




Thank you for taking GoPro along for your exploration & sharing it with the world, Chuck!


We’re all blown away.
