Close Encounter: Surfer Touches Great White Shark & Doesn’t Realize It

I took a drive south to warmer waters in Southern California and filmed a group of white sharks among surfers enjoying the surf. On a few occasions the sharks approached the surfers closely. The surfer’s don’t appear to know they aren’t alone in the water.
