Ya hey…we all know sharks are in the ocean and South African surfers will be well aware that they share the waters with Great White sharks. Sometimes though you don’t realise how close they get until someone films your session and you watch the footage later only to realise that you actually nearly landed on one. Case in point this SA surfer who bailed out of a wave along the Garden Route and almost jumped on a shark.

Here’s the surfer bailing out.
And this is the same wave literally less that a second after he goes under the water. I’ve increased the contrast to show the shark.
The stills are from a video by Stuart Brink Films and happens just after the 2.35 mark.
