Me And My Shark - Video

The astonishing thing about this video is that Chuck Patterson saw the great white shark, and went back the next day with his camera to deliberately get close to this predator. His dscription is below.

Me my Shark and I from Chuck Patterson on Vimeo.

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 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.

Where is this footage taken? Research is being done and great whites have been caught off outer hebrides. Is this footage of relevance to them?

Hi Susan

I don't know where it was shot, I just embedded it from Chuck's website. Clicking the Vimeo link shows he is registered as being based in Dana Point, California.

So perhaps it's safe to assume this isn't shot in Hebridean waters.
